PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — It wasn’t your typical Cinderella story. But in the end the shoe fit and 29-year-old Tyrell Copper found himself in jail.

Police say Copper and another man went into a Palm Beach Gardens Home Depot store on Tuesday and tried to take two bags of weed killer without paying.

The Palm Beach Post reports someone attempted to stop the pair but Copper ran to a getaway car. The problem? He ran right out of his shoe, which was left behind in the store.

Police spotted the car and pulled it over outside a Lowe’s store. When police asked the occupants to get out, they noticed Copper was missing his right Nike shoe. The missing shoe matched left at the store.

It’s not known whether Copper has an attorney.
