MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Thieves ran off with $800,000 worth of Nike shoes and clothing after ransacking 20 trailers, according to the Memphis Police Department (MPD).

The break-in happened near Shelby Drive and Lamar Avenue just after midnight on Tuesday, September 6, according to a police report.

Twenty trailers that contained Nike shoes and clothes were found to have been broken into when MPD arrived at the parking lot, according to police.
