Air Jordans are still the most beloved sneaker on the planet. Even the ugly pairs that no one would drop $150-200 for still get snatched up as if they’re the next dope shoe for the streets, all because of that little Jumpman.
But one thief took shit too far when he actually stole a praying man’s J’s while he was at a mosque!
Here’s what DNA Info added about the theft:
The 30-year-old victim was praying at Masjid Dawood at 143 State St. around 5:38 p.m. on May 10 when the suspect came in and took his black Michael Jordan sneakers off a shelf, the NYPD said.
He also took the victim’s wallet containing $120 in cash out of his jacket, which was resting on a chair, police said.
The suspect then fled, leaving his own shoes at the mosque, according to police.
So, yeah, in addition to the praying dude getting his Jordans taken from him, the dickhead criminal took $120 and the guy’s wallet—which probably included credit cards and shit. What an awful day.
Police are still on the hunt for the thief, so maybe some prayer could be in store to track him down?
