(Reuters) – The Nordstrom department store in Los Angeles Mall has become the latest target of a traction series that will hit luxury retailers in the US states of California and Illinois with the arrival of the holiday season.

The Los Angeles Police Department has arrested three suspects. According to local sources, up to 20 people may have been involved in the robbery.

Authorities say they were inspired by the audacity of the attacks on luxury stores in both states over the past week – involving dozens of people.

Videos of chaotic robberies showing masked men breaking into shops, running around with luggage and escaping in cars waiting outside have been circulating on social media in recent days.

The San Francisco Bay Area is particularly hard hit by the high density of luxury shopping. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the region has one of the richest nations in the world, with average gross domestic product more than twice the national average.

About 80 people broke into a Nortstrom supermarket in Walnut Creek on Saturday night and stole the goods until police arrived and arrested three people, according to a Walnut Creek Police Department statement.

“Police are clearly investigating the incident,” police said.
