A Memphis man has been charged with the theft of 7,500 pairs of Nike LeBron 12’s, after driving off with a truck load of sneakers.
According to ESPN.com, Charles Jennings, an employee of cargo transportation company Intermodal Cartage Group, used his ID card to get into a secure lot and drive away with the cargo of LeBron James’ latest signature shoe, worth approximately $1.5 million.
The incident took place in early November, but came to light this week when Jennings appeared in court… and is due back after the new year.
He’s currently free on $75,000 bond.
Apparently, Jennings had been selling the shoes for about a week, but the Memphis Auto Cargo Task Force would catch up to him. Around 700 pairs were missing by then.
