Admit it. You've fantasized about it: strolling into a Rodeo Drive boutique, grabbing what you can and making a run for it. Of course you would never do it. There are cameras everywhere. The alarms are, well, alarming. And the Beverly Hills Police Department has a response time that is the envy of cops from coast to coast. Plus, it's just plain wrong.
Nonetheless, a crew pulled it off at the Saint Laurent Paris boutique, at least until the BHPD tracks them down:
The department says "multiple suspects" shattered the entrance to Saint Laurent Paris about 4:15 a.m. yesterday and made off with more than $100,000 worth of French fine goods.

The burglary at 469 N. Rodeo Drive set off an alarm, but when officers arrived the bad guys were gone, BHPD said in a statement:
It is believed numerous handbags, clothing and shoes were taken; the exact dollar loss is unknown at this time. However, it is believed to be substantial and in excess of 100,000 dollars.
