CHICAGO — Two shoplifters nabbed three jackets collectively valued at more than $100,000 — including a rare, $95,000 alligator trench coat — from Downtown luxury stores last week, police said.
The suspects, a white man and a white woman, stole a $95,000 jacket between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Dec. 14 from a store on the 700 block of North Michigan Avenue, police said Monday morning.
Earlier that afternoon, the suspects also allegedly took a suit coat and a jacket valued at $10,000 from another store on the first block of East Oak Street.
The stolen merchandise. A $95,000 Ralph Lauren alligator jacket taken from 750 N. Michigan Ave., a female jacket and men's sport coat from Oak Street worth a total of $10,000.
Staff at the Ralph Lauren store, 750 N. Michigan Ave., confirmed a $95,000 "Purple Label" alligator trench coat was stolen last week. The jacket was on display on the second floor of the store, staff said. The clothier's "Purple Label" is a higher-end line featuring some of Lauren's most expensive items, including the $95,000 alligator coat.
