The St Catherine North police believe that thieves are targeting stores that sell the popular Clarks shoes, after two stores in the Linstead were recently robbed of several pairs of the footwear.
Two men, who were found with a number of the shoes in their possession, have since been taken into custody by the Linstead police.
Reports reaching THE STAR are that about 8 a.m. yesterday, police searched two houses in August Town and Prospect in Bog Walk, and seized a number of the shoes that are believed to have been stolen.
Last week, thieves broke into a store located on King Street and another on Gillette Street. The police told THE STAR that more than $2 million worth of Clarks shoes have been stolen from the two stores in Linstead.
