Thieves Steal $140,000 in Ohio Louis Vuitton Merchandise

Thieves stole merchandise worth an estimated $140,000 from a Louis Vuitton store in Ohio during a midday robbery on Wednesday, authorities said.

Between eight and 10 masked individuals were dropped off at the Kenwood Town Center mall in Sycamore Township around 3 p.m., WXIX reported. The mall is located approximately 11 miles northeast of Cincinnati. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) said the group of suspects drove to the high-end Louis Vuitton store, passed the employees and grabbed “every item on the showroom floor”, depending on the point of sale:

The HCSO initially reported that the suspects got away with $413,000 worth of goods, but the number has been updated to $140,000, the WCPO noted. The HCSO said following the robbery, the suspects fled in a black sedan and dark gray SUV, which were last seen heading north on Interstate 71, WXIX reported.

Authorities have not arrested any suspects and the investigation is continuing, Fox News said.

Dan Hils, president of the Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police, told WLWT that he witnessed similar incidents in California:

I admit to being a little shocked because I saw that in California and all that. And even though common sense would tell me that one day it would come here, actually seeing it in a place – the Kenwood mall, where, you know, I’ve been going a lot with my wife recently and all that… that that happening here is truly shocking.

He added that the suspects must be arrested and prosecuted to prevent similar incidents from happening again.

“I mean, it’s a big deal,” he said. “If we don’t find these people and punish them, incarcerate them, then everyone here can start to expect more and more of this.”
