A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection to a stolen vehicle packed with 1,100 pairs of brand new Yeezys.
A tweet from the Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct shows the stolen U-Haul filled with scattered stacks of brown shipping boxes that look like what Adidas uses for e-commerce shipments. The tweet says all 1,100 pairs are Yeezys with an estimated value of over $250,000. This figure would price each pair at around $227, around what a pair of Yeezys costs at retail—meaning the total resale value could be considerably more than $250,000.
Police say the U-Haul was stolen Saturday night and recovered by officers the following day. Rupert Crosse was arrested and charged with aggravated theft and possession of a stolen vehicle, according to court documents viewed by Oregon Live.
