According to news reports, burglars have "smashed" the front window of the high-end fashion store on the posh 8400 block of Melrose Avenue in the early morning, "grabbed" expensive merchandise, and then quickly fled the scene.
Jacobs' handbags and purses, among other items, sell for thousands of dollars.
