Detectives search for suspects in Jimmy Choo theft

Detectives in Montgomery County are looking for four men who they say swiped several handbags from the high-end Jimmy Choo store in Chevy Chase on Wednesday, authorities said.

In a news release, police said three of the four came into the store on Wisconsin Avenue about noon and swiped the handbags in about 10 or 15 seconds. They then made off in a red four-door sedan driven by a fourth man who was waiting for them outside, authorities said.

In total, the bags were worth more than $10,000, police said.

Police said the three people who entered the store and the apparent getaway driver were all black males. Surveillance footage from a nearby department store shows one man wearing a sort-of-gray stocking cap and two wearing baseball caps. One man is wearing what appears to be a light gray sweatshirt, another is wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, and another is wearing a dark coat with two breast pockets.

Anyone with information is asked to call the department’s Bethesda Investigative Section at 301-657-0112.
