The Hermès Heist


If you’ve been dreading dropping thousands on your wife’s latest shopping whim—an Hermès bag—then you may be in luck. Six thieves made off with more than US $1.07 million worth of Hermès bags at a packaging and logistics facility northwest of Paris on Thursday. Reportedly, the six unarmed banditos forced the manager of supplier CAMS in Le Plessis-Bouchard to load approximately 500 Hermès bags into a truck before they fled the scene in two vehicles. If your other half’s been eyeing leather or canvas Hermès bags retailing between US $535 (AED/SAR 1,963) and US $5,354 (AED/SAR 19,664), feel free to break the news to her that she might have to wait just a little bit longer.
