MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police are searching for nearly two dozen people caught on video breaking into a shoe store and stealing nearly $100,000 worth of Nike shoes.
MPD officers responded to a burglary at Valid Kixx in the 6500 block of Winchester Road about 9:45 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022. According to the police report, the owner was notified by his alarm that someone was breaking into the store. Surveillance video showed about 20 suspects running in and out of the store grabbing merchandise off shelves and racks.
According to the police report, investigators said the burglars got in by throwing a tire wrench through the window. Then while inside, MPD said the crooks kicked a hole into a rear wall to get to a storeroom full of new shoes.
Investigators said the suspects were driving several different vehicles, including a dark-colored Dodge Charger, a Challenger, and light-colored Infiniti and Mercedes.
Memphis Police told ABC24 that this smash and grab appears to be connected to a recent armed shoplifting incident at the Walmart in Whitehaven and another incident at Retro Grade on Highland.
