Suspects stole van from Chanel store in Beverly Grove

For the second time in three months, suspected thieves crashed a van into the same Chanel store in the Beverly Grove neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The suspects were unable to steal anything in the latest incident, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

At least two male suspects crashed a stolen van into the store early Tuesday, the LAPD said. The crash happened at 2:45 a.m. in the 180 block of South Robertson Boulevard, LAPD spokesman Warren Moore said.

Two men – one wearing a white mask and yellow jacket and another wearing a blue or black hoodie – were confronted by the armed security guard inside the store. The suspects fled north on Robertson on foot, Moore said. It is not known whether they were adults or minors. Police also don’t know if the incident was gang-related.

Authorities said they arrived at the scene and believe there may have been more suspects inside the scene. After establishing a perimeter and calling in reinforcements, they discovered that no one else was inside the store. The number of suspects will be determined by investigation and surveillance video, Moore said.

Officers recovered a suspect’s hat and stolen goods from the store that were deposited at the scene, Moore said. The police did not disclose the value of the stolen goods. The van was also stolen and seized, police said.

A similar incident occurred on July 20, when several suspects robbed the Chanel store after using a van to ram the entrance, City News Service reported. Moore said he could not confirm whether Tuesday’s incident was related to the previous one, or whether it involved the same suspects.
