Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton and Neiman Marcus were among several upscale stores and apartments burglarized in the Beverly Hills area of California on Thursday night, according to local media reports.

The theft spree started at around 10pm, the LA Times reported. The burglars had made off with hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of luxury products and electronics, such as laptops, watches and wallets. They appeared to have gotten in through the front door, with no signs of forced entry, the Times reported.

The burglars, wearing masks and hats, had broken into all three businesses by breaking a window and were last seen running through the complex, according to KTLA.

When a deputy turned up to search for the suspects in the early hours of Friday morning, the suspects had fled, KTLA reported.

None of the stores were hosting events at the time of the break-ins, which happened in 10 separate locations within two weeks. The burglaries have baffled Beverly Hills police, who are currently investigating. Police tweeted on Friday morning: “It’s looking like a combination of both a professional and a copycat burglary.”

More than $500,000 worth of merchandise was stolen from Louis Vuitton, Nimmons-Whistler and Nordstrom, the LA Times reported. A spokesman for Neiman Marcus has not yet responded to a request for comment, but the company issued a statement saying it was aware of the situation and was cooperating with the police.

“Neiman Marcus has made substantial security enhancements across our portfolio and is actively engaged with local authorities to identify the alleged perpetrators and recover the items taken,” the statement said.

Nordstrom announced on Monday that it would open its first full-line store in Manhattan for the holiday shopping season.
