Another semitrailer full of Nike Air Jordans has been stolen. This time, the trailer was jacked in Junction City, Kansas.

On Christmas Eve, thieves stole a semitrailer packed with 4,716

pairs of Nike Air Jordan Classics 90. The thieves apparently made it to at least Council Bluffs, Iowa,

where they ditched the truck. But there was no sign of the J's.

Authorities believe the thieves stole a second truck, hooked it

to the trailer full of shoes and kept on rolling.



The white Air Jordans were known to be sold in the Kansas City metro area. The shoes' estimated worth: $200,000.



The most recent theft of Nikes came last Thursday. The haul: 3,000 pairs. Kansas City Police Chief Jim Corwin wrote on his blog that there's a chance the shoes could wind up being sold in the metro (lucky you?). Be on the lookout for all white Nike Air Max 90s.

If someone is

trying to sell you a pair of Jordans or Nike Air Maxes out of a semitrailer, give the

KCPD's TIPS Hotline a call at 816-474-8477. Unless you get a really good

deal.
