Victoria Police are searching for thieves who stole more than $1 million worth of Hermès handbags from a Brighton home last week in a case they are labelling on their website as “Totes Couture”.

Investigators believe that the offenders forced entry into the house some time between September 18 and October 4 while the residents were overseas, and proceeded to steal 30 handbags worth more than a hefty mil.

Those things have insurance, right?
