Sign of Memphis as America's Distribution Center

Thieves Hit a Major Lick Stealing $14K Worth of Nike Shoes

Memphis, Tennessee has been dubbed the “distribution center of America,” and someone recently saw an easy target sitting in a parked truck’s trailer. Inside it carried one of the greatest commodities in society today: Nike sneakers.

As reported by WREG, last week an estimated $14,000 worth of Nike sneakers were taken from outside a warehouse in Southeast Shelby County. The thief (or thieves) cut a hole in a fence, broke off the lock and left with a dozen cartons of Nikes.

For the multibillion dollar clothing company, $14,000 isn’t a huge L. However, after spending $300 million to open its distribution center in Memphis, you’d think Nike could afford better security. Yes, the truck wasn’t parked on Nike property, but that truck was sitting around the city two days waiting on a tire repair.

This is also the second major Nike robbery in a month. Last week it was reported that a man stole 800 pairs of sneakers from Nike’s factory store in Portland, Oregon to buy drugs. So how many more pairs of Vapormaxs and Air Jordans are you guys going to lose? As Memphis’ own Project Pat said, everyone is a suspect.
