They're more like 200-500 each...

I'm told the investigating officer is going to do more work on the case. There are lots of possibilities and I don't want to jump to any conclusions. It could be that the incorrect number was used or that it was an unintentional overestimate.

I am a purse lover, and I know there are not any Coach bags that cost $5,000. Unless, they are some kind of crocodile skin which is rare. Now if it were an LV, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, or Hermes, now you are talking.

Well, it looks like I need to throw myself on my sword! While the price listed was correct, I read "Coach" when the police report actually had Chanel as the brand. Just got to see the report again a few minutes ago. My bad! I updated the blotter item above to have the correct brand name. Thanks for the comments!
