Staff at Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store in Manhattan ran an identity theft scam using stolen shoppers' information that netted more than $400,000 worth of designer shoes, handbags and accessories, authorities said.

The sophisticated scheme funneled stolen data to corrupt salespeople to create sham transactions, complete with phony shoppers on the other side of the register, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. and federal authorities said on Monday.

The haul included a roughly $10,000 Yves St. Laurent handbag, $2,000-a-pair shoes and brand names such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Kate Spade, he said.
