Texas mall roof cut, attempt to steal Air Jordans

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police have arrested two teenagers after the roof of a mall was cut in an apparent failed attempt to steal Air Jordan sneakers.

Greenspoint Mall was closed early Wednesday when a security guard saw some people inside a shoe store and called police. Officers discovered the hole in the roof and a break-in at an athletic shoe store.

Investigators say two teens were captured at the scene. A third youth escaped while trying to flee via the roof.

More than a dozen pairs of Air Jordan shoes, which can cost $140 or more, were abandoned atop the roof.

The teens are facing burglary and evading arrest charges.
