CHICAGO (CBS) — Police on Friday warned of three retail thefts at high-end stores on or near the Magnificent Mile this week.
In each incident, the thieves broke into a store and took high-end merchandise, before getting into a waiting getaway car and leaving.
The thefts all happened in the early-morning hours. Two happened early Tuesday in the 0-99 block of East Walton Street and the 600 block of North Michigan Avenue, while the third happened early Thursday, also in the 600 block of North Michigan Avenue.
Police did not specify which stores were targeted.
