Detectives search for suspects in Jimmy Choo thefts

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.
