The Memphis Cargo Task Force spoiled a plan to steal nearly $1 million worth of Nike LeBron 12s. How the perpetrator got nabbed belongs in the stupid criminals hall of fame.
Apparently, the plot involved an employee at the the Intermodal Cartage Group trying to tow a trailer containing 7,500 pairs of King James' 12th signature sneaker off the lot by using his very own ID card. Thanks to the task force, the bandit didn't get too far. The Memphis Cargo Task Force is comprised of members of the FBI, U.S. Marshal's Service, Shelby County Sheriff's Office, and Memphis Police Department. With Memphis being a top distribution hub for brands like Nike and shipping companies like FedEx, the task force works around the clock to make sure heists like this don't happen. Of the 7,500 pairs stolen, the task force was able to track down 6,800 of them.
