Burglars steal $8,000 worth of merchandise from collectible shoe store in Saginaw Township

SAGINAW TWP, MI – Police are investigating a burglary at a Saginaw Township collectible sneaker store that resulted in the theft of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise.

At approximately 3:50 a.m. on Monday, September 26, police responded to an alarm at kingdom of kicks, 3039 Bay Plaza Drive. They arrived to find the front door glass shattered with a knocker nearby, Saginaw Township Police Lt. Rick Herren said.

Video footage recorded by in-store cameras shows two men entering the store and stealing shoes and clothing, Herren said. Store owner Don “DJ” Evans Jr. estimated that $8,000 worth of merchandise was stolen.

In a Sept. 28 post to the store’s Instagram account, Evans wrote that the door had been fixed and his business was open again.

“No broken glass or thief will stop me,” he wrote. “This is just one more lesson on my life journey. Young thieves, just know that you could have asked me for free shoes and I would have blessed you.

In the post, Evans then informed his customers that he would be offering great deals in the coming days.

Kingdom of Kicks opened in 2019 like a sneakerhead’s dream. It features collections of everything from rare retro Jordan-brand sneakers to Nike Air Foamposite, Nike Air VaporMax, Converse, Pharrell Williams NMD Human Race Adidas and products from Supreme.

Lt. Herren said the investigation is ongoing and he is not currently releasing details of the suspects. Anyone with information on the identity of the burglars or the location of the stolen shoes and clothing is asked to call the police at 989-793-2310.
