Police said they are searching for three men who allegedly broke into and robbed a high-end boutique on the Near North Side where handbags can fetch upwards of $15,000.

Burglars forced open the front door of the Jimmy Choo store, 63 E. Oak St., sometime after 1:50 a.m. Thursday, police said.

Police said they did not immediately know the dollar amount of merchandise taken from the store, which specializes in accessories for women and men. Prices on the store’s website for high-heeled shoes range from $300 to $3,000.

Area Central detectives are investigating.
