Burglars Crash Van Into Aurora Outlet Mall Store

Burglars crashed a stolen minivan into a high-end shop in west suburban Aurora Tuesday morning, causing more than $20,000 in damage.

The burglary occurred at about 4:30 a.m. at the Salvatore Ferragamo in the Chicago Premium Outlets Mall, located at 1650 Premium Outlet Boulevard, according to a statement from Aurora police.

They made off with more than $40,000 worth of purses and luggage, police said.

After the store’s alarm went off, responding officers found a Dodge Grand Caravan with heavy front end damage, police said. The van’s doors were open and several purses were laying in and around the van.

As additional officers arrived, it was discovered that the front entrance had been smashed and tire tracks could be seen leading inside, police said.

The van was stolen from Chicago, police said, and at least four people were involved in the burglary.

Anyone with information is asked to call Aurora police at 630-256-5500.
