They say at least four suspects broke into a Foot Action through the roof around 5am.
Officers and a mall security guard located three of the four after searching the roof for nearly an hour. Two adults and one juvenile were taken into custody without incident.
The fourth fled the mall property and remains on the loose.
According to authorities, the suspects were trying to steal 17 pairs of Air Jordan shoes valued at a total of between $3,000 and $4,000.
