Police say that around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday the thieves used a stolen Ford F-250 truck to smash into the WSS shoe store on S. Gessner and Highway 59.
The suspects stuffed the shoes in trash bags, leaving behind empty Nike, Adidas and Vans boxes. As they got away, they also left some of the bags in the parking lot.
Authorities are looking at surveillance video to try to get a better idea of what the thieves look like and how many were involved.
