Affidavit: Man Stole and Sold Shoes from NE Portland Nike Store to Support Drug Addiction | Local News
According to court documents, a man repeatedly stole thousands of dollars worth of shoes from the Nike Factory Store in northeast Portland and sold them on the street to support his drug use.
Kelvin Torain Millage, 52, was indicted on Thursday for theft, conspiracy to commit theft and possession of heroin.
He was arrested on Wednesday after an investigation into the theft of Nike shoes.
Surveillance video showed Millage stealing $350 worth of shoes on March 27, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The affidavit indicates that Millage was known to the police. After being contacted by officers, according to court documents, Millage admitted to being involved in four different robberies at the store on northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Millage said other people were involved in the thefts with him, according to a probable cause affidavit, but he would only arrive and depart with them and was only with them to commit the thefts. The other suspects have not been identified.
Other thefts included $1,200 worth of shoes on April 3, $1,500 worth of shoes on April 4 and $2,425 worth of shoes on May 6, according to court documents.
The probable cause affidavit says Millage said he was a drug addict and estimated he stole 20 pairs of shoes and sold them to people on the street for $800 to buy drugs.
Police said he was carrying three cartridges of heroin and a pipe containing drug residue when he was arrested.
Millage is due back in court on May 26. Court documents say he also goes by names such as Kevin Millage and Anthony White.
