SANTA ANA — Robbers staged a smash-and-grab burglary at a Macy’s fragrance counter at the MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana Thursday night.

Three men smashed glass display cases and made off with perfume just before 8 p.m., according to the Santa Ana Police Department. The men were wearing hoodies and possibly bandanas covering their faces during the burglary.

The stolen perfume was Chanel, but the dollar value was not available Friday, police spokesman Anthony Bertagna said,

The suspects put the bottles into duffle bags and left via the store’s south doors to an awaiting early 2000s silver Nissan Altima, police said.

The suspects “were last seen leaving the parking structure northbound onto Main Street and out of sight,” Santa Ana police Cmdr. Joe Marty said.

Nobody was injured during the burglary, Bertagna said.
