Suspect charged in theft from Louis Vuitton at Northbrook Court
A Chicago man has been charged in one of the two smash-and-grab thefts last fall from the Louis Vuitton store in Northbrook Court, officials said Wednesday.
Tony Simmons, 19, is facing one felony count of robbery, according to a news release from the Northbrook Police Department.
Simmons and seven other people forced their way into the store the evening of Oct. 5 and stole purses and luggage worth more than $77,000, the release said.
Several of the bags had GPS trackers inside, and officers found one of the trackers discarded along I-94. Investigators determined that a palm print on the tracker was a match to Simmons, and that other evidence also placed him at the scene during the crime, police said.
Simmons is currently being held at the Cook County jail, according to the Cook County sheriff's website, and his next court date is scheduled for June 22.
