Apparently, this group wasn't going to settle for some third-rate vinyl bags. On Saturday, March 30, a 33-year-old clerk told police that four unknown young men walked into a trendy clothing accessory store on Greene Street around 3 p.m. The clerk said that three of the men immediately caused a distraction in the store as the fourth man grabbed three Louis Vuitton Keepall duffel bags from a shelf. Something of a melee ensued as three men attempted to block the store's security agents from getting to the man who had the unpaid merchandise.

Security then locked the front door to prevent the men from leaving and that is when, according to police, two other black men, outside the store, broke the front door lock and allowed the four men inside to make their escape. According to police, all six men fled northbound on Greene Street. Police searched the area but didn't find the men. Police said video of the incident was available and being viewed. The bags taken were valued at $6,210. Police are looking for all six men, described as ranging in age from 20 to 35, wearing blue jeans and multi-colored jackets and sneakers.
