NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police released new video Saturday showing a group of people looting a luxury Soho store of $1.5 million in merchandise as large protests rocked the city weeks ago.

Police said the suspects gained entry to the shop by smashing a window with a brick. They got away with just over $1.5 million worth of merchandise.

A number of luxury stores in Manhattan were targeted by looters in late May and early June amid widespread protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.
