BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA) — Police are investigating a break-in Monday at the Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Store in Beverly Hills.
Officers responding to a burglary alarm at the store on Wilshire Boulevard found someone had forced their way into the store by removing a window from the building.
“I just can’t believe this,” one neighbor said. “This is amazing. You don’t see that very often. It’s pretty safe in Beverly Hills.”
Several jewelry cases appeared to be smashed and missing their contents.
It’s not clear how much property was taken or its value. The store opened on time, in spite of the missing window.
Police got a call about 4 a.m. Monday morning when someone saw broken glass. Police searched the store for more than an hour and found no one.
But residents understand that even their city isn’t immune from crime.
“The whole world is changing,” the neighbor said. “We have to be a little more careful.”
Police are working with store security to get video from the store’s surveillance cameras.
