Texas Police Trying To Get "Controlla" Of Drake Look-A-Like Shoe Thief

SOUTHLAKE (CBSDFW.COM) - Police in Southlake might have been in their feelings as they began searching for a shoe thief. But their social media posts make it clear the suspect is not, I repeat not the rapper Drake.

On January 29 a man police describe as "a bad guy that is definitely not Drake" entered a Kohl's department store on Highway 114. After opening several boxes of shoes, taking them out and setting them aside, the man ultimately walked away with six pair -- that police emphasize weren't made of Tuscan Leather!

The suspected "Champagne Papi" wanna-be is described as a Latin male in his early 30's, standing about 5'10" and weighing 190 pounds and of course the man has a full beard.

Anyone with information about the theft or who recognizes the suspect is asked to drop some "Hotline Bling" to Southlake police at 817-748-8915 or send an email to Anonymous messages can also be sent through any Southlake police social media channel.

While the thief has definitely "Started From The Bottom", police are hoping to soon have him there -- in jail.
