A trucker carrying a load of shoes got nearly cleaned out by looters during an unscheduled stop to seek a prostitute and drugs.

As many as 3,400 pairs of sneakers and shoes by Rockport, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger and Timberland were stolen. Many looters left their old, worn-out shoes littering the street where they sat down and tried on new ones.The frenzy even resulted in a minor traffic collision as two drivers rushed to take part.
