Thieves in Nebraska stole thousands of dollars in products from a vintage clothing business this summer, but authorities have learned that they mostly stole shoes for the left foot.
On Aug. 18, at 6:38 a.m., the Lincoln Police Department responded to the store Exclusive Hype in Lincoln after a neighbour saw one of the store’s windows “had been shattered and contacted police along with the store owners,” according to a police statement report provided to Fox News Digital.
According to Lincoln Crime Stoppers, a VW Atlas was observed in security footage pulling up to the spot around 4 a.m., and three individuals exited the vehicle.
They attempted to enter the establishment by pulling on a strap on the front door, but that tactic failed, and the suspects then switched to shattering glass to gain entry.
When police arrived at the store on O Street, they discovered that the suspects had stolen around $20,000 in items, including apparel and shoes. Last week, it was revealed that the suspects typically stole single shoes for left feet.
“They then broke in through a window and stole a bunch of… left shoes.” “You heard correctly, single shoes,” Lincoln Crime Stoppers said of the incident. According to KOLN News, the correct shoes were housed in another room of the building.
Police are still looking for the three individuals and are requesting members of the public to contact the Lincoln Police Department or Crime Stoppers with any information.
A similar theft occurred earlier this year in central Peru when three suspects took more than 200 trainers from a shoe business. The item was worth over $13,000, but the suspects only got away with shoes for their right feet, according to Fox News. According to authorities, the robbers fled the area on a tricycle.
