Thieves Return French Police Armbands, Keep Luxury Loot

Wednesday, 30 December 2015 06:06 PM

PARIS (AP) — A French prosecutor says choosy thieves returned a delivery of police armbands they say they inadvertently stole while targeting luxury goods.

Vienne prosecutor Matthiew Bourrette told the Dauphine Libere newspaper that five masked thieves robbed a delivery center in Saint-Quentin-Fallavie on Dec. 22, making off with a shipment of Louis Vuitton products — as well as six packages destined for the national police.

The paper reported for Tuesday's editions that the packages containing police armbands were left outside the police station overnight on Dec. 24 with a taped note: "An unexpected windfall, luxury clothing targeted without weapons or violence. Happy holidays to all."

The thieves — and the Louis Vuitton merchandise — remain missing, the newspaper reported.
