MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Two men are behind bars and accused of stealing more than $5,000 in designer handbags.

It was all caught on surveillance video at Saks 5th Avenue in Dadeland Mall Wednesday.

The two people could be seen grabbing the bags and dashing out of the store. Police said one of them kicked the store’s glass door causing it to shatter in order to get out.

The employee chased after them, but they got away in a car.

Jerrell McDaniels, who was seen wearing a wig, and Javonte Barnes appeared in bond court, Thursday.

At last check, they are still in jail.
