News flash from Paris' Golden Triangle - In the early hours of Monday June 10, 2024, the Chanel boutique, nestled at 42 avenue Montaigne in the 8tharrondissement of Paris, was the target of a major burglary. The robbers used a ram car to smash the door and windows of the luxury boutique, before burning it down, stealing the merchandise and fleeing in an Audi S4.

The police, quickly alerted, tried to intercept them, but to no avail. The incident, which took place in a record time of 3 minutes, caused considerable material damage. Initial reports gathered by Le Parisien indicate that the main loot consisted of Chanel bags, although the exact amount of the loss has yet to be assessed.

This is not the first time that such a burglary has occurred in this prestigious district of Paris. Indeed, the previous month, a neighboring luxury jewelry store, Harry Winston, was also the victim of a similar attack.

An investigation into the robbery has been opened, with the authorities actively working to identify and apprehend the perpetrators. The financial damage suffered by Chanel is currently being assessed, but preliminary estimates suggest it could be in the region of 10 million euros!
