Police in Virginia, said that they have arrested Kenneth Johnson, for theft of shoes. Police allege that Johnson took shoes from strangers and kept them for a few days before returning them with a bodily fluids.

The thefts have taken place in Henrico County, since early September. Police said that Johnson took the shoes from people’s porches and returned them days later with what police called “biological evidence.”

Henrico County School spokesperson Andy Jenks, said that the suspect turned himself into police. He was a math teacher at the Varina high school, and has been placed on administrative leave.

One victim told police that she saw the “shoe thief” taking her shoes, and when she asked him what he was doing, he said that he liked to smell women’s shoes. He then allegedly sniffed the shoes in front of the victim.

The teacher faces eight counts of damaging property and three counts of petty larceny.
