The games afoot

What with Sherlock Holmes back on the big screen (good movie BTW) it seems not out of place to find reported a baffling mystery from the US. Four duffel bags filled with hundreds of men’s used shoes were found along the Big Elk Creek near Elkton. The booty (sic. sorry) were all men’s shoes of all sizes and kinds including: sneakers, work boots, dress shoes, flip flops, casuals and sandals. The Newark Police Department believe the the collected swag represent dozens of shoe thefts from 2003. Apparently multiple burglaries involving shoe theft have been reported over the years but no one has ever been apprehended. A case for Holmes and Watson, perhaps?
