Burglars crash car into Magnificent Mile Louis Vuitton, steal purses

CHICAGO -- Burglars smashed their way into a high-end store on the Magnificent Mile on Sunday.

It happened shortly after midnight at the Louis Vuitton store in the 900 block of North Michigan Avenue.

Police say five men used a BMW to ram their way into the store. They quickly got out of the vehicle and grabbed merchandise.

When they tried to back the vehicle out of the store, their car hit an Uber filled with passengers.

Police say the robbers then jumped into a black SUV and got away before abandoning the vehicle at 57th and Green.

The same Louis Vuitton store has been hit by thieves three times in the last six years.
