Theft of shoes Exeter

Associated Image

Police in Exeter are investigating a rather odd theft which was committed in the High Street overnight Monday 4 to Tuesday 5 February 2013.

A rack of shoes had been left unattended outside the shoe shop and by the following morning they had been stolen.

However, the shoes will be of little use to the thief as they consist entirely of right footed ladies shoes and children’s snow boots.

Officers are appealing for information from anyone who may have witnessed the theft or may know where the stolen shoes are.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said, “The stolen footwear will be of little use to anyone without the matching shoe.

“The opportunist thief who stole them probably didn’t realise they were not in pairs. As they are useless, we appeal for them to be returned to the store”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting crime reference DE/13/1117.
