Hermes bags worth over a million dollars were stolen from a logistics facility near Paris. According to reports, six thieves arrived at the facility – named CAMS- at a time when the manager was the only staff member present. They then forced him to load the bags into their waiting vehicle. 500 Hermés bags – both leather and canvas- were stolen with each bag retailing at anywhere between €500 and €5,000.
The bags certainly weren’t anywhere close to being Hermés’ most expensive products. However the incident is the latest in a long string of luxury thefts around the world. In the last few years a large number of brands associated with jewelry, accessories and timepieces have been targeted. Such products are easy to transport and are extremely popular in resale markets.
WWD also noted that the thieves appeared to be unarmed in the surveillance footage.
