Woman Flees Shoe Store In Car With Pair Of Nikes

A woman who allegedly stole a pair of Nike sneakers about 1 p.m. Thursday from The Shoe Dept. became combative and fled in a car before Greeneville police arrived, Officer Nicholas Fillers said in a report.

The store manager told police a heavyset white woman with long, curly black hair entered the store, at 2345 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., "removed a pair of shoes from the box and placed them in her pants," the report said.

The woman left the store without paying for the sneakers. An employee attempted to stop the woman, "who became verbally combative" and left in a blue Pontiac sedan.

"[The employee] said he was almost struck as it backed from the parking space," the report said.

Police have a tag number.

A woman meeting a similar description was involved in an attempted shoplifting incident on Wednesday at Burke's Outlet in the Greeneville Commons, the report said.

The Nike Air Max sneakers are valued at $75.

The incident remains under investigation.
