NEW YORK - Police are searching for looters who made off with more than $375,000 worth of handbags from a store in SoHo during the chaos that unfolded after protests for George Floyd. (See images below)
Video of the looting at the ReBag Store on West Broadway at 11:30 p.m. on June 1 shows the group grabbing as many bags as they could carry along with clothing off racks.
Cops say they stole pricey handbags by Hermes, Fendi, and Louis Vuitton.
Authorities said that the number of police officers on the street overnight was doubled in an effort to hinder looting. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio hoped the curfew would minimize violence and looting
Anyone with information about the looters is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
