The perpetrator turned out to be a fox.
A forest worker accidentally stumbled upon the stash of stolen property near the fox’s den and called police.
"There was everything from ladies' shoes to trainers," said a spokesperson from the local police. "We've found between 110 and 120 so far. It seems the vixen stole them for her cubs to play with."
I did some research and there is no FoxToys R US in the area and two of the cubs are teething.
Since the thief had no ID, police booked the animal as Imelda Markos Fox. She was tagged and sent back into the wild. The device that is attached to her has a built-in alarm that will sound every time she tries to steal shoes.
The cubs didn’t beat up the stolen merchandise too badly, as the shoes were returned to their rightful owners unharmed and intact. Although one pair of Gucci with 6" heels looked much like a gnawed ham bone.
