An Atlanta sneaker boutique by the name of A Ma Maniere recently got robbed, again. Yea, this is the third time the shoe got robbed, and this time the timing could not have been more worse (for the store) since the adidas Yeezy Boost 750 Black and Air Jordan 8 Chrome are both releasing this weekend.
I’m sure that whoever committed the robbery had a pretty good idea what was releasing this weekend and was looking to cash in big time by doing so. Among the items being reported stolen are things such as 6 ipads, several tennis shoes, the cash register and around $700 in cash. No word yet whether they were able to get away with this weekend’s releases, but there’s no doubt that they were looking for them.

Burglars smashed out a front window of A Ma Maniere in the 900 block of Marietta Street near 8th Street shortly after 3 a.m. Thursday.
Atlanta police spokesman Warren Pickard said surveillance video showed three male suspects entering the store and stealing six iPads, several boxes of tennis shoes and the cash register, which contained $700 in cash.
On Sept. 7, surveillance video showed seven thieves looting the store of an estimated $15,000 in merchandise after backing a Ford Taurus through the front doors.
Following that incident, the store’s owners installed large concrete posts in the parking lot to keep vehicles from being able to drive through the front of the store.
In Thursday’s break-in, the thieves heaved pieces of concrete at the store’s large double-paned front glass window, but were only able to shatter the outer pane of glass.
They then broke out a smaller glass window above the front door to gain entry to the store.
Pickard said investigators Thursday “collected blood evidence from the scene which was a result of one of the subjects injuring himself during the entry.”
