A stolen $3 million Nike shipment from 2009 was recently recovered from the lawn of a central Kentucky home. Taking the role of a reseller to the next level, a Radcliff resident and her daughter were reportedly selling the thousands of pairs for five dollars a piece, but they allegedly did not steal the shoes themselves. Acquiring the lucrative stock through someone else, the two sneaker resellers had no idea that it were stolen merchandise from five years ago. According to a search warrant filed by Nike security, the crates of shoes were from a Swoosh distribution center in Tennessee and were intended to end up in Texas. No arrests have been made, but the shoes have since been confiscated. To see a video review of this whacky story, head to WLKY News.
