CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police said they are investigating a "high-end theft" at Saks Fifth Avenue on Fifth Street Downtown.

Ten to 12 people wearing hoodies stole several items from the Louis Vuitton section of the store shortly after 10 a.m. said Captain Mike Neville.

They were in and out in 30 seconds, he said.

No one was hurt, and no weapons were seen during the offense.

Initially, a police spokesman said officers were pursuing possible suspects who may have fled the store in a vehicle with Illinois license plates. But the vehicle was determined to not be connected several minutes later.

The store has reopened, Neville said.

The store was the scene of a smash-and-grab robbery back in late December.

Four alleged robbers crashed a van into the store while it was closed around 6 a.m.

They slammed the van twice into the security gates and left it running in the building, according to police.

Four male suspects made off with five to 12 pieces of merchandise, including some designer purses.
