A man named Kelvin Torain Millage has admitted to liberating over 800 pairs of sneakers from a Nike outlet in Northeast Portland.
It seems that Mr. Torain is a dope fiend, and he would sell the pilfered kicks to maintain his habit.
Kelvin Torain Millage told detectives that he is drug addicted and steals the shoes to sell them on the streets, according to court documents. When police questioned Millage, he told them that he estimated he has stolen more than 800 pairs of shoes from Nike.
Millage was identified as a suspect in the thefts after detectives reviewed Nike’s in-store security system.
When he was arrested, police found three bindles of heroin on his person, according to court documents.
According to court documents, Millage was involved in the following thefts:
March 27 – Shoes valued at $349.97 stolen
April 3 – Shoes valued at $1,200 stolen
April 4 – Shoes valued at $1,500 stolen
May 6 – Shoes valued at $2,425 stolen
Millage remains in custody and is due back in court later this month. He appeared in court on Thursday where he was charged with five counts of theft and one count each of criminal conspiracy to commit theft and unlawful possession of heroin.
We gotta ask…
What kind of struggle security was holding down this Nike Outlet that homie in the mugshot was able to finesse his way out of the store with over 800 pairs of kicks?
Also, did he ever come up on that Supreme x Jordan collection? Asking for a friend…
