A former DHL employee was caught stealing approximately $60,000 USD worth of Nike products from the delivery company’s Fox Meadows warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee. The location is not far from the Nike North American Logistic Campus, which is considered the brand’s primary U.S. distribution facility. The ex-worker, Chamon Davis, has been charged and arrested as of earlier this week.

Davis was able to execute the heist by printing duplicate tracking numbers and shipping items to alternate addresses. So far, Nike has only recovered $10,000 USD of stolen merchandise and is unsure of when how long Davis has been stealing from the company. It is also unclear what products she has stolen. Earlier this week, the culprit confessed to her crimes and was released from jail with a court date set for next month.

With sneakers being such a hot commodity in the fashion world, it comes as no surprise that courier thefts are increasing by the numbers. Lately, customers have filed a series of complaints regarding “missing” orders and cancelled orders that occurred after shipping was confirmed. Some have even reported on stolen sneakers when they received empty boxes upon delivery. Recently, Nike has been utilizing a new packaging for their shoes that made it easier for outsiders to access what was inside the box, potentially inciting theft.

Nike nor DHL have spoken out about the current issue.
