Burglar pried open door only to steal Jordans: report

JONESBORO, Ark. – A criminal went to great lengths just to get a new pair of shoes, a police report indicated in Jonesboro.

At about 4:25 a.m. Thursday morning, October 5, JPD Officer Trey Chism was dispatched to Stadium Place Apartments at 3719 Stadium Boulveard in Jonesboro, where one of the tenants had returned home from work to find someone had broken into his apartment. The break-in occurred sometime in the prior 12 hours, the report indicated.

The suspect used some type of prying tool to break the door open, although it was still functional, Chism reported. Throughout the apartment, he said several cabinets were opened and drawers appeared to have been gone through. However, the only thing stolen was a pair of black and red Air Jordan sneakers.
