Halton Regional Police are trying to track down several suspected thieves after multiple thefts from a Burlington showroom.
The incidents occurred at Emile Shoes, said the police.
One of them happened when a man walked into the store on May 19 and selected two pairs of shoes, Pumas and a pair of Cloud 5 Ons.
The man takes off the shoes he was wearing in the store, puts the Cloud 5s on his feet and leaves his old shoes in the Cloud 5 box on a shelf, police said.
