A sneaker bandit caught a sweet lick. Reportedly, $14,000 in Nike shoes were pilfered from a parked truck in Memphis.

Reported WREG:

Memphis police are investigating after over $14,000 worth of Nike shoes were stolen from a parked trailer. It happened at CEVA Logistics in Southeast Shelby County.

“In Memphis, they know what trailers got what in them,” said driver Ned Hunter.

Hunter’s been a truck driver for a decade. He says criminals often stake out warehouses and follow trucks with merchandise they want to steal.

“It’s more the drivers with the van trailers that really have to worry about it a lot,” said driver David, who only wanted to go by his first name.

Police say a truck parked on Pleasant Hill in Southeast Shelby County was the latest target.

Someone cut through the trailer’s lock, broke in and got away with at least a dozen cartons of Nike shoes. The loss is valued at over $14,000.

Somewhere, probably in Memphis, you can get a steep discount on some new kicks, if you know the right shady individuals. Just saying.

Seems like sneaker heists are becoming more common. Recently, a shipment of adidas Yeezy’s got liberated from a truck in Denmark.
