Shoe Thief ready to start a business
A South Korean man stole 1200 pairs of expensive shoes from funeral homes while posing as a mourner in Seoul. The thief took off his own shoes before entering mourning rooms and donned more expensive footwear when he left. His intention was to sell them through his own second-hand shoe business. After he was caught stealing three pairs of shoes, worth $1950 (US) from a funeral home police raided his warehouse and found 1200 in preparation for resale. The stolen shoes were left on display at the police headquarters for a week and many were reclaimed by their owners.
