Shoplifters threaten Seattle Niketown employees with foot-measuring tool

If ever there was a case for a gumshoe.

Seattle police say two women made off with bags of clothing from Niketown after threatening employees with a foot-measuring tool.

The women walked into Niketown in the 1500 block of 6th Avenue around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and began stuffing clothing and other items inside shopping bags, police said.

Store staff became suspicious so one employee called 911 while another group of employees gathered around the store’s front doors in an effort to deter the women, according to police.

One of the women then grabbed the metal foot-measuring tool from Niketown’s shoe section and brandished it as they forced their way out of the store, police said.

The two women jumped into a white Ford Escape with out-of-state plates and drove off.
