Soul Mates: Thieves Lift 1,400 Pairs Of Shoes

(AP) A couple of heels stole a trailer in suburban Detroit and hot-footed away with 1,400 pairs of shoes worth $40,000. Security cameras show at least two men hooking the trailer to their truck early Friday at a loading dock in Redford, then driving away. The trailer was found a couple of blocks away in Detroit.

The shoes belonged to the Mr. Alan's Shoes & Sportswear, a retail chain with eight locations in southeast Michigan. CEO Roger Turner told Detroit's WDIV-TV that he's not surprised by the theft, and that in tough economic times anything is possible.

Police are investigating.
