Fashion Valley Mall Commercial Burglary Update
San Diego County Crime Stoppers released the following information and are offering “up to a $1,000 Reward” for finding the suspects.
San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Western Division are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate multiple suspects wanted for burglarizing the Hermes De Paris store at the Fashion Valley Mall.
On January 21, 2018, at 4:18 a.m., three vehicles arrived at the north entrance of the Fashion Valley Mall, located at 7007 Friars Road, in San Diego. A total of ten suspects got out of the vehicles and then forced entry into the Hermes De Paris store by using a pry bar to open the front door.
The suspects were inside the store for approximately two minutes and stole various items including purses, jewelry, and clothing. The total loss is estimated at over $500,000. These suspects may be related to a statewide series where high-end department stores are being burglarized.
All suspects were wearing hooded sweatshirts and gloves. The suspects used three vehicles and each one had paper plates. The v
ehicles are described as a white Chevy Suburban, and two blue colored sedans (possibly imports).
Investigators have released surveillance video of the burglary. Both videos can be viewed below.
