We had to do a double take, thinking this was an old story. But it’s not. For the second time in just a few weeks, the LV store in the Northbrook Court Mall was robbed. Midday November 1 – yes, in broad daylight – the gloved and masked suspects grabbed $150,000 in merchandise and escaped in three waiting vehicles. According to police reports, it all occurred in about 30 seconds. No one was injured.
As you may recall, on October 5, a similar event occurred at the same store, netting the thieves about half as much.
No one has been arrested yet in connection with either robbery. Officials are looking into a connection between the two incidents, including reviewing video.
