CMPD Warns of Sneaker Robberies That Are Being Set Up Online

From, January 30, 2013

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police want to alert the public about a string of robberies where people’s sneakers are being stolen.

Officers said some of the robbers and victims are meeting in a Facebook group called the Sneaker Head Society.

They said it runs a lot like Craigslist, where people meet up with others to sell a pair of hard-to-find sneakers.

Police encourage people to always arrange to meet in a public place and make sure the other user’s profile stays on the site after you set up the meeting.
