(KPRC)  A Texas jewelry heist sounds like it was ripped from a Hollywood movie script.

Investigators are searching for a thief who stole up to $1 million worth of designer handbags and jewelry from a woman's closet in The Woodlands that recently got international attention.

The closet is three stories and 3,000 square feet.

"This is the stuff you see in the movies. You never think it would happen to you," owner Theresa Roemer said.

Roemer said she came home Friday night from a nearby country club to find someone had gone through her closet, filling up dozens of very valuable Berkin bags with watches and jewelry.

Roemer is an entrepreneur and philanthropist. She said she built the closet to host fundraisers.
