Two people were in custody and other suspects were being sought after an early Wednesday morning smash-and-grab style burglary on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, police said.
Authorities said several people were seen running from the Neiman Marcus store, on the 700 block of North Michigan Avenue, after a van crashed through the front window at about 4 a.m.
A number of handbags were seen scattered on the ground outside the store, but police could not immediately confirm how much, if any, merchandise was stolen.
A police department spokesperson later said two people were arrested.
A new pawn shop in the Southwest Side Chicago Lawn neighborhood was hit in a similar heist just about 24 hours earlier.
