Louis Vuitton and shattered Saks windows in Rodeo Drive

Authorities in Beverly Hills are investigating after two storefronts near the Tony shopping area of ​​Rodeo Drive were smashed shortly after midnight on Sunday.

Officers responded to reports of attempted burglaries at a store in the 200 block of Rodeo Drive and another in the 9600 block of Wilshire Boulevard at around 12:30 a.m., according to Captain Max Subin of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Witnesses reported the locations as a Louis Vuitton store and a Saks Fifth Avenue.

Subin said several suspects were seen traveling in several vehicles and that they “came down to the scene and used a hammer to try and break through the front windows.”

No entry was made in either case, he said.

The incidents occurred following a series of armed robberies in the Bay Area, which included targeted thefts Friday and Saturday from several high-end stores, including Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.

Chicago Police were also investigating a similar robbery at a Neiman Marcus store on Friday night.

Subin has not confirmed whether officials in Beverly Hills are considering the related incidents. Beverly Hills Police and Armed Private Security have increased their patrols in the area, he said.

“It used to be the safest town in the West, but it’s no longer the case,” buyer Salvano Fino told CBS-TV at the scene. “Anyone can come and take, and it becomes very easy for them. “

Representatives for Louis Vuitton and Saks Fifth Avenue did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Calls to the two stores went unanswered Monday morning.
