The Louis Vuitton store in Edinburgh – which sells handbags worth up to £ 25,000 each – was left with a gigantic hole in his front window after the daring raid this morning.
He was crushed by two thieves at 3:45, which was then made with a number of designer handbags in a saloon car getaway money.
The pedestrian shopping street Multrees Walk stables also taken Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger and is next to Harvey Nichols.
The gigantic jagged hole in the Louis Vuitton window appears to show the mass blowing brands and the staff could be seen inside to repair the damage through the morning and afternoon.
DI Graham Grant said: “Despite the weather early this break, it was an incredibly brazen incident in an area that sees regular attendance throughout the day.
“We are conducting various lines of inquiry in the region in order to trace the suspects and are now asking the public for their assistance.
“These men are believed traveled on foot so I would appeal to anyone who saw these men, their vehicles, before, during or after this incident or has information on the whereabouts of handbags is requested to contact the police. ”
The first suspect is described as white, around 30 years old, about 6ft high with a slim build and a prominent nose. He was wearing a gray hooded top with the hood and black cap hat, dark trousers and black trainers.
The second suspect is described as white, between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall of medium build and wearing a gray hooded top and dark backgrounds.
The street has been targeted in the past and the bosses twice promised to take additional security measures.
In 2006, managers said they would tighten security after thieves broke their way into a G-Star socket using a car to leave with the clothes more than 17,000 value of £.
And bosses renewed their promises in 2009 after a ram raid on Mulberry shop in late December of last year has helped to crooks off with handbags worth £ 15,000.
But speaking today, a director of the local store who asked not to be named into question the safety management in the complex, which calls itself “the definition of Edinburgh luxury boutiques.”
She said: “It happened around 4 am but I do not know how it happened that, there is 24 hour security on the promenade.
“There is also CCTV all the way up the street.
“Usually, there are about two or three members of the security during the day, so probably less at night, but they must have taken some time shattering that huge hole.
“I know there have been attempts before, but in the middle of the glass does not break, this time they went for the weakest area – the bottom corner.
“They seem to have left all the small items like belts and the corner where they broke is where the most expensive parts are exposed.
“The Burberry store was attempted there some time, but the person did not break it with a pole.”
Sean Davidson, sales assistant at Sandro, s aid: “As we are a very united community on Multrees, it is horrible to see something like this happens to one of our neighbors – especially so close to Christmas.
“Knowing the high level round the clock security we have in place on Multrees Walk, I am shocked that they were able to break their way into the store. It must have been incredibly well planned and executed.”
