Vegas, NV: Thieves steal up to $20K worth of shoes from the Goodie Two Shoes

Foundation has been helping kids in need break in new shoes for years.
Unfortunately, the nonprofit was the victim of a break-in. Thousands of new
shoes that were supposed to go to kids were stolen. The burglars didn't just
smash and grab. The alarm system installed to protect the charity's
warehouse failed, and the crooks made several trips in and out of the
building. Goodie Two Shoes has been serving Southern Nevada for 14 years.
This isn't the first time the organization has been a victim of crime.
"Stealing from anyone is terrible, but stealing from a nonprofit that helps
children in need with shoes - that's the lowest of the low," Goodie Two
Shoes founder Nikki Berti said. The break-in occurred Sunday morning. The
culprits were captured on surveillance video.
