Burglars crashed a car Tuesday morning into the Louis Vuitton store at Northbrook Court mall, police said, the latest in a series of smash-and-grab burglaries around the Chicago area. Northbrook Police said the crash happened at 4:53 a.m. Police said a number of purses were taken from the store, estimating the total value stolen at $120,000. Sources close to the investigation tell NBC5 the heist is similar to several other recent thefts in the Chicago area. The sources said security video, which has not yet been released, shows a sedan crashing into the store with as many as nine burglars in the car.
