If you see someone wearing orange track cleats signed by track superstar Usain Bolt, please alert the authorities.

From the Los Angeles Times:

A pair of orange Puma cleats worn by the Jamaican sprinter when he set the world 100-meter record back in 2009 has been stolen from a display in Croydon, a town in South London, according to multiple media reports.

The shoes, which were signed by Bolt, are said to be worth nearly $34,000.

For his part, Bolt seems to have forgiveness in his heart.
