END Warehouse Employee Steals £100k Worth Of Product

Even after fighting millions of other users (or bots) in order to secure products from boutiques across the globe, the final hurdle is always whether the sneaker is actually delivered to your front doorstep. Social media has been riddled with accusations and stories of delivery services swiping packages from customers before reaching their final destination. While these cases occur, product theft occurs throughout the entire supply chain. It can happen in the brand's manufacturing factories, in transit to the retailers, and sometimes even at the retailer's warehouses...

As reported by Sunderland Echo, UK-based retailer END Clothing's former warehouse employee, Wakas Hussain allegedly had 29 deliveries sent to the same address. He circumvented the company’s systems and was eventually caught red-handed when he gave a package containing three sneakers valued at £700 to the delivery dispatch driver with a manually input address. After this, police investigated the address where all of these deliveries were made and found £105,333 worth of product (around £40,000 in wholesale value) in the home of Hussian’s then-partner’s mother. Luckily, all of the product was seized by authorities, and Hussain eventually pled guilty to the crime in turn being sentenced to “12 months suspended for two years with a community order and 200 hours unpaid work.”

Although the value of the product amassed to such a large amount, Hussain stated in court that he had no intention of selling any of it and had started stealing to distract himself from personal issues. Now, the Newcastle resident is currently employed by a new company that is well aware of his past and understands how remorseful he is for his mistake.

This is just one of the dozens of cases that have popped up in the last few years of delivery services and/or warehouse employees being caught siphoning product for themselves. Just last year a FedEx delivery driver was arrested for stealing nearly $100k in sneakers meant for Foot Locker. Hopefully, we see less of these cases going forward as companies are beginning to crack down on internal theft.
