Two thieves stole nearly $1 million (600,000 euros) worth of goods at Colette in Paris yesterday morning, reports Agence France-Presse.
According to AFP, the robbers entered the store just after 10 a.m., when the store opened its doors. They forced the employees and security guard to the ground and were quick to nab merchandise, including expensive watches priced at up to 13,000 euros each. Both were masked and armed—one carried a shotgun and the other an axe—but no one was hurt. The thieves fled the scene on a scooter with fake license plates.
Still, Colette was business as usual. Shortly after the robbery, the high-end retailer issued a statement (sort of) via Instagram:
