A smash-and-grab break-in early this morning at the Magnificent Mile Louis Vuitton store netted several purses and other leather goods from the tony high-end retailer.
Somebody shattered the front door window at the Louis Vuitton store, 919 N. Michigan Ave., at around 6 a.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
"Several handbags, purses, wallets and various items like that were taken," Mirabelli said.
Police had no estimate of the retail value of the stolen items, Mirabelli said Saturday morning.
The Louis Vuitton Web site lists several handbags for sale for more than $3,000.
It's unclear what the thief used to break the glass, Mirabelli said. Belmont Area detectives are investigating, he said.
A man who answered the phone around noon at the number for the Michigan Avenue Louis Vuitton would not discuss the incident, but said the store was closed.
