Thieves crash car into Beverly Hills Neiman Marcus in latest smash and grab affair

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KABC)– Beverly Hills police are searching for thieves they say drove a car into a luxury department store in the recent burglary in the upscale city.

The suspects struck just before 5 a.m. Saturday, taking off with an undisclosed amount of merchandise from Neiman Marcus on Wilshire Boulevard. The police responded within three minutes, but the suspects were already gone.

“It’s very disappointing and very scary … the fact that the police department got there in three minutes and they were gone and they had a getaway car planned just seems to be organized at a very high level,” Courtney Baillie said.

It was the latest arson crime in the upscale city. Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook vowed quick action and said he was confident the department would arrest those involved based on the evidence left at the scene.

The city has added more officers and private security to the department to patrol the streets. But as thieves continue to strike, many in the city are saying more needs to be done.

“My thoughts are helplessness. How did we get the country to this point where this is normal? That in a really safe area like this people would drive cars into buildings to loot the place. It’s terrible. The city needs new leadership,” said David Thomson.

It’s unclear if an abandoned vehicle was stolen, but it’s believed to have been.
