Just when it seemed like Fed Ex was the devil when it came to “shipping and handling” Nike sneakers to customers just waiting to leave them empty-handed, it seems they were competition from another delivery service and it’s not UPS.

hypebeast reports that a former DHL employee has just been arrested for stealing approximately $60,000 worth of Nike products while at the delivery company. Chamon Davis was arrested and charged earlier this week for the heist she continually carried out while working at DHL’s Fox Meadows warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee. The facility isn’t too far from Nike’s main distribution center, Nike North American Logistic Campus, so you all know she had a blast.

How could she steal so many Nike items? Actually quite smart.

“Davis was able to execute the heist by printing duplicate tracking numbers and shipping items to alternate addresses. Time Davis steals the company. It is also not known what products she stole.

Apparently Nike investigators (have any?!) are the ones who caught Davis and turned her over to the authorities. After being arrested and charged, Davis confessed to her crimes and was released from prison and is awaiting her day in court which is scheduled for next month.

Since the start of the pandemic, many sneakerheads have started taking to social media to complain about canceled orders, missing packages and even receiving empty boxes, as reselling sneakers has become the quickest way to make money these days. It didn’t help that Nike started using “Steal Me” tape that read “Nike” all over to close their boxes. While it was mostly Fed Ex services that were blamed for the missing packages, this is the first time we’ve heard DHL was on the jux.

Truth be told, we didn’t even know Nike used them like this, but you learn something new every day.
