Chicago police are on the hunt for three smash-and-grab burglars who targeted the Canada Goose store on the Magnificent Mile this morning.
A store employee was in the back office area of the store, which sells high-end winter gear at 800 North Michigan, when the burglary occurred just after 6 a.m.
Three men used a hammer or crowbar to break a pane of glass. Then, they ran in, grabbed armloads of merchandise, and hurried back out in a flash.
A Chicago police officer who reviewed surveillance video said the trio fled in a white SUV.
Canada Goose coats typically sell for over $1,000 each. The store is located directly across from Chicago’s historic Water Tower.
On Christmas Day, a smash-and-grab crew struck the store’s next-door neighbor at 4:39 a.m.
The break-in at Bottega Veneta Chicago was committed by three men who pulled up in a white van and used a sledgehammer to break out a pane of glass. Once inside, they filled trash cans with purses that retailed for more than $4,000 each and hauled them away.
Chicago police released surveillance video of the Bottega Veneta crew, but no arrests have been announced.
