Handbag heist: Thieves ram car into Chanel boutique in Paris & make off with $510K in purses

PARIS — French police officers say thieves have driven a vehicle into a Chanel store in central Paris just before dawn, crashing through the boutique’s shutters and setting the car ablaze as they made off with a number of luxury handbags. Officers at the scene said the raid occurred Thursday at around 5:30 a.m on the Avenue Montaigne, a street famous for its swanky shops. A Paris police spokesman declined to answer questions about the incident, but according to France Info, the bandits made off with roughly €360,000 (or $510,000 Canadian) in luxury merchandise. The French capital has seen a series of brazen raids targeting high-end retailers in recent years. In 2014, the Dior and Céline boutiques along the avenue were ransacked and in December, a thief made off with millions of dollars worth of jewelry in a store across the street from the presidential palace.
