Gloucester Police Auctioning off Limited-Edition Trainers

BBC.com

In an effort to fund their fight against crime, police are auctioning off a gang member’s collection of trainers.

Isaiah Hanson-Frost is currently doing a six-year bid for discharging his weapon at a rival gang’s car. During his trial on November 23, Hanson-Frost denied the criminal possession charge but agreed to surrender his sneaker collection.

Prior to the arrest, Hanson-Frost owned 55 sneakers valued around £18,500. According to Gazette, the brands include “Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo.”

Police and crime commissioner Martin Surl states that the proceeds will help finance their “30 projects a year”, including “the Getting Court scheme, an initiative which enables local students from 15 to 18 to attend Gloucester Crown Court and witness the effects of a real trial.”

However, all hope’s not lost for Hanson-Frost–he’ll be able to keep any trainers valued less than £100.
