Hundreds of shoes found in bags near Md. creek

Police are investigating the discovery of hundreds of shoes in duffel bags along a creek in Elkton, Md., but they don't know if the shoes are related to a string of shoe thefts in Newark, Del.

Newark police say during several burglaries, pairs of men's shoes were stolen, as well as photographs depicting men.

The shoes, stashed into duffel bags, were found along Big Elk Creek on Sunday.

Authorities say they have not linked the discovery to the recent burglaries.

The ghost of shoeless joe jackson is likely very, very angry.

If they were women's shoes, the ghost of J. Edgar Hoover would be just as angry.
