The goods include jewelry and high-end handbags and are collectively worth around $300,000, according to ABC.

The police believe the items were headed for a watch store on 27th Street and Vermont Avenue near the USC campus. The shop has bought and sold stolen items in the past, according to KPCC. The shop owner had been arrested and is out on bail.
The items were recovered on April 18 after police served a search warrant to the shop, according to NBC.
