Police said a group of more than a dozen people broke into a Louis Vuitton store in suburban Chicago and stole about $120,000 worth of merchandise.
The suspects captured in the video wore face masks and sweatshirts as they took their bags and cleared them from store shelves. The robbery resulted in about $120,000 in stolen merchandise.
The incident occurred at the Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, Illinois, around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oak Brook police said in a press release.
With the goods in their hands and bags, the 14 thieves escaped in three separate cars. As of Friday, police had recovered one of three used cars: A Dodge Charger reported stolen in October in Chicago.
There are no reported injuries or weapons shown on the footage.

“We are still developing and working on several leads to identify the offenders involved in our case,” Oak Brook police said in a statement.
The Chicago robbery happened just before more than 80 people hijacked a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek, California on Saturday night. One employee is said to have been pepper sprayed and two punched and kicked.
That same night, stores including Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Bloomingdales, Hermes and Fendi in San Francisco went bankrupt. Videos showed Louis Vuitton stores in San Francisco with broken glass and empty shelves while Walgreens and a cannabis dispensary were also looted.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, multiple vehicle suspects attempted to break into two stores in Beverly Hills, police said.
According to Lt. Robert Maycott, the suspects tried to use a sledgehammer to break the windows of two stores in the Rodeo Drive area, but were unsuccessful. The area is famous for its wealth and sprawling high-fashion boutiques and designer labels.
It’s unclear if any thefts or attempts are connected at this time.
