PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida — Police in South Florida say they arrested a man suspected of stealing weed killer after he left his shoe behind while running away.

Police in Palm Beach Gardens say 29-year-old Tyrell Copper and another man went into a Home Depot store Tuesday and tried to take two bags of weed killer without paying.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/TvM3dT) reports someone attempted to stop the pair but Copper ran to a getaway car. Leaving one of his shoes behind.

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, which matched the one left at the store.

It's not known whether Copper has an attorney.
