A robber got away with $1 million worth in designer handbags and jewelry over the weekend.

The thief reportedly broke into Theresa Roemer’s three-story closet while she was out to dinner with her husband. The burglar stuffed three Birkin bags (retail price: $60,000 a piece) with goodies before making their escape from the The Woodlands home, a suburb of Houston, Texas.

“They say it doesn’t look like an inside job at all,” Roemer told KHOU. “They said it was very professional, like too professional. The police said it could have been somebody that, like I said, saw all the publicity, Google Earthed it, figured it all out, flew in here, who knows?”

Roemer also told KHOU that she did not set the alarm or lock the closet before leaving the house with her husband. Roemer’s closet was featured in Cosmopolitan last month. The 3,000 square-foot, three-story closet, houses her 60 Birkin bags and 75 pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes amongst other things.

According to CultureMap Houston, Roemer has hosted a number of charity events inside the closet and at its champagne bar.

The top floor of the closet houses furs and hats. The second floor is as much activity center as storage space. In addition to her shoes, clothes and vanity (professional salon style for hair styling and makeup application), there is a champagne bar for high style partying amid the cache of designer labels.

While the thief was recorded by surveillance cameras, police do not currently have a suspect.

“He took heirloom items that were passed to me from my husband’s mother that has passed away,” Roemer told KHOU. “I mean I don’t care about all this crap. I really don’t care about this crap. I care about the stuff that was passed to me.”

Roemer added, “No one deserves this. I don’t care if you’re wealthy. I don’t care if you’re poor. Your personal belongings are your personal belongings.”
