Shoe theft surveillance
MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. -

Police have identified the man accused of taking nearly $2,000 worth of shoes from the Super Shoes store at the Fairgrounds Square Mall in Muhlenberg Twp., Berks Co.

Tips received as the result of media reports showing a surveillance picture earlier this week helped identify the suspect, said police, who did not release his name.

The man took $1,700 worth of Crocs brand shoes from the store on four separate occasions over three days last week, police said. He fled on railroad tracks adjacent to the mall.

Anyone with information that can help police with the investigation is asked to call Crime Alert Berks County at 877-373-9913. A cash reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.
