Thief steals shoes in house today FOUND :grinning:
Sorry about this, how annoying. It sounds very strange, did the person / people take anything else?
Do any of your neighbours have ring type video doorbell? Might be worth asking if anyone has any footage around the time this happened.
Sounds nuts, but is there any possibility a fox or a dog might have got access? Shoes have magnetic attractions for them.
It would be odd if a dog randomly selected only individual right shoes and not even any left ones or even pairs. This is so weird.
Feels very very odd and a bit creepy if there’s a thief with a shoe fetish. Or perhaps someone who tried to break in properly, couldn’t and decided to annoy you on principle? Were any of your neighbours targeted too?
Do you know that someone broke in - and it wasn’t just kids seeing a door accidentally left open and playing a joke? Or, and appreciate, this might be unlikely but a neighbour who doesn’t like your shoes being in the hallway and wanted to make a point?
Just a thought. Do you have a place with a shared hallway (e.g. where others may pass by the shoes, you did mention that they were outside your ‘flat door’)? If so, it could be some kind of elaborate protest! Others may not wish to see your shoes every time they pass your door. However, even if this was the case, perhaps a better way of them dealing with it would have been to raise the issue with you in the first instance.
I’m in the top flat, so my shoe rack is no bother to anyone else, as they can’t see my top landing.
I don’t believe it!
Just found 3 of my shoes in the street at the back of FH Sainsburys.
Absolutely Bizarre. All OK.
Glad you got some of the back. Very surreal experience though
