NBC NATIONAL NEWS — High heels are generally viewed as a women's accessory but one man in Edmond thought differently and it landed him in jail.
Surveillance video caught a suspect on camera in the act of shoplifting from the Super Target in Edmond, Oklahoma
He came into the store barefoot, went to the women's section and picked out a pair of women's high-heeled shoes, $40 Prabal Gurung pumps to be exact.
He then walked around the store for a while in the shoes.

When questioned, Schmiedel told officers he was stealing the shoes because he was going to use them for a drag show.
