Police are looking for two men they say have been swiping handbags from the Michael Kors store in Flatiron.
Police were able to get a fuzzy photo of two suspects, though it isn’t clear if they were involved in all recently reported incidents of theft at the store. Police are aware of eight thefts of handbags at the location at 133 Fifth Avenue since January 10.
On January 10, three handbags were taken. On January 13, another three bags were stolen. On January 16, two bags were stolen with another four, along with a keychain, stolen on January 20. On January 31, three handbags were stolen. On February 6, five Mercer bags, which range in price from $250-$500, were taken. Another three Mercers were stolen on February 10, which is the most recent known incident.
There was also an additional incident, on January 24, when a man was arrested for stealing one handbag.
Michael Kors bag prices currently range from $128 for a tote to $2,450 for a large python satchel.
Police are also looking for two men who stole 11 bags from the nearby Coach store on Fifth Avenue on January 23.
