Neiman Marcus in San Francisco was recently victimized by multiple shoplifters who made out of the high-end department store with items valued at “several tens of thousands of dollars” and fled in getaway cars, according to NBC Bay Area.
Police say they’re looking for suspects wearing masks and hoodies after they were caught in a cell phone video running out of a Neiman’s Union Square location around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
“Officers arrived on scene and met with the victim who stated that multiple suspects entered the store, grabbed merchandise and fled the scene in multiple vehicles,” said police spokesperson Michael Andraychak to the New York Daily News.
“During the incident the suspects damaged glass cases and other store property. … Our investigation involves analyzing videos and speaking with witnesses which include store employees and customers.”
The police department from Palo Alto is working with that of the City by the Bay to see if the recent robberies are connected to a string of other thefts in the area.
NBC Bay Area says more than $100,000 in handbags have been stolen from another Neiman Marcus location and a Louis Vuitton store in Palo Alto in almost the same way.
“The safety and welfare of our associates and customers is our top priority and we’re relieved to report that no one was harmed in the incident,” read a statement from Neiman Marcus, according to the Daily News.
“We’re cooperating with the San Francisco Police Department in their investigation.”
So far, there have been no arrests.
