A UPS employee in Secaucus, New Jersey was reportedly caught stealing more than $1,100 worth of sneakers directly from the company’s facility, according to a report by NJ.com.
41-year old Halif Bryant of Jersey City, New Jersey was reportedly arrested late last week and charged with theft, but was released shortly after being processed. According to NJ.com, Bryant had stolen three pairs of sneakers, valued at over $1,100, although it's unclear exactly what kind of shoes they were.
This isn't the first time we've heard a story like this. A Maryland truck driver pleaded guilty to stealing over $19,000 worth of New Balances last year after a co-worker allegedly offered him $250 to pull of the heist.
Also last year, a Fed Ex employee was accused of stealing a Yeezy Boost 350 delivery, rather than dropping the box off at its destination. The allegations called into question Adidas' transparent shipping methods, which have the style code listed on the outside of the box, allowing the drivers to know exactly what sneakers are being shipped.
