BREA ( — Two burglaries occurred at separate LensCrafters stores in Orange County Wednesday morning.

Thieves smashed through a glass window at an Irvine store, 13662 Jamboree Road, just after 1:30 a.m., officials said.

The suspects made off with hundreds of sunglasses and glasses worth thousands of dollars, including at least 400 Maui Jim models, which can cost upward of $300.

The second burglary happened around 2 a.m. at a Brea LensCrafters store, police said.

The suspects gained entry to the store, located at 1040 E. Imperial Highway, by smashing the front glass door.

A Brea police officer was in the area when the burglary occurred. The suspects tried to flee the scene and led the officer on a brief pursuit on the 57 Freeway.

The chase ended in Diamond Bar, where the suspects were arrested.

Authorities have not said whether the incidents might be related.
