Two Arrested After Mag Mile Smash-and-Grab Burglary

Van crashed into the Neiman Marcus store on the 700 block of North Michigan Avenue early Wednesday

Two people were in custody and other suspects were being sought after an early Wednesday morning smash-and-grab style burglary on Chicago's Magnificent Mile, police said.

Authorities said several people were seen running from the Neiman Marcus store, on the 700 block of North Michigan Avenue, after a van crashed through the front window at about 4 a.m.

A number of handbags were seen scattered on the ground outside the store, but police could not immediately confirm how much, if any, merchandise was stolen.

A police department spokesperson later said two people were arrested.

A new pawn shop in the Southwest Side Chicago Lawn neighborhood was hit in a similar heist just about 24 hours earlier.
