A THIEF did a runner with two pairs of stolen running shoes worth $1500 after a sale organised through social media went wrong on Barker Road, Subiaco about 10.10am last Thursday .
“He just ran up, grabbed the shoes off his victim and sped off to a waiting vehicle,” Senior Sergeant Julie Foley said.
Sgt Foley said the sale near a house on the street had been organised by a Floreat man (22) on Facebook the previous evening.
The shoes were a pair of Nike Air Yeezys and a pair of Ultra Boosts made by adidas.
The getaway car was described as a white Holden Commodore sedan, and the thief was in his mid 20s, bald, about 175cm and wearing a black T-shirt.
