Police arrest man with 7,500 pairs of stolen LeBron 12's
Friday December 12th, 2014

Many people wait in line all night to get the newest Nike releases, but a Memphis man took a more proactive, but decidedly less legal approach when he stole a truck containing 7,500 pairs of LeBron 12s, the latest release in James' signature shoe line. 

According to ESPN, police have identified the thief as Charles Jennings, an employee of the cargo transportation company that owned the stolen vehicle.

By the time police arrested Jennings on Nov. 14, he had already sold around 700 pairs of the shoes, which retail for $200.
