Walnut Creek police said approximately 15 suspects got away after attempting to burglarize at a Louis Vuitton store early Tuesday.

Multiple 911 calls came in about the high-end Broadway Plaza store shortly before 4:30 a.m., according to a press release by WCPD. Police arrived within one minute and found the large group trying to burglarize the store.

When the suspects fled in different directions, a pursuit ensued on westbound Highway 24 but was terminated near Orinda due to safety concerns, authorities said.

A black 2017 Land Rover used to smash into the front of the store was left behind, police said. It was later determined to be stolen out of Sacramento.
