The Gucci (Florence, Italy) store in Los Angeles’ Westfield Century City Mall was robbed earlier this week by several thieves who pulled off a grab-and-go heist that was caught on video, The Los Angeles Times reports. This is the second time in recent months that Gucci has been the target of such an attack; the first took place in July at the luxury retailer’s store in San Francisco’s Union Square.

In the LA heist, a group of at least nine men could be seen in a video posted on X sprinting out of the Gucci’s – which is located within the shopping complex’s Bloomingdale’s store – around 3:10 p.m. Monday. The thieves, who were wearing hoodies, are shown sprinting out of the Gucci store and through the Bloomingdale’s’ doors with merchandise overflowing in their arms.

The Gucci thefts reflect a wider wave of organized crime that retailers have been struggling to deter in recent years.
