Folks in the small Indiana town of Waveland have noticed their shoes disappearing one by one.
The shoe thefts started in June.
Now, acting town marshal Rob Kiger and others think a stray dog is the shoe robber.
He's seen a brown and white dog, possibly a beagle, carrying footwear.
Others have spotted shoes and the dog near the town fire station.
Kiger says he's tried to catch the canine crook, but it's just too fast.
