Earlier this week, Luxury Garage Sale in Old Town was victim of another "smash and grab". The thieves broke in and stole dozens of designer handbags, totaling an estimated $100,000. They did however leave one Chanel bag behind; that bag alone has a retail value of nearly $1,500.
Last week, Montcler in Gold Coast was burglarized and just one of many recent "smash and grabs". We hoped it would be the last, but unfortunately, it seems to be an ongoing trend.
