Yeezy Adidas shoes worth $250,000 found in stolen U-Haul; Portland man arrested, police confirm

A 26-year-old man named Rupert Crosse, reportedly has been arrested in connection to a stolen vehicle packed with 1,100 pairs of brand new Yeezy brand shoes.


Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct stated that the U-Haul was stolen on Saturday night and recovered by officers the following day. Rupert Crosse was arrested and charged with aggravated theft and possession of a stolen vehicle, according to court documents viewed by Oregon Live.


A tweet shows the stolen U-Haul filled with scattered stacks of brown shipping boxes that look like what Adidas uses for e-commerce shipments. The tweet says all 1,100 pairs are Yeezys with an estimated value of over $250,000. This figure would price each pair at around $227, around what a pair of Yeezys costs at retail—meaning the total resale value could be considerably more than $250,000.


“Last night, a U-Haul containing 1,100 pairs of new Adidas ‘Yeezy’ shoes was stolen,” the bureau’s North Precinct said on Twitter. “Dayshift officers located the U-Haul, arrested 26 YO Rupert Crosse and recovered the shoes, which are estimated to be worth over $250,000.”

According to The , Crosse had already been involved in pending cases related to prostitution and strangulation and had also been charged in November on several other charges including unlawful possession of oxycodone.
