The authorities were quick to respond, and the shoe thief was caught shortly after his misadventure. Now facing the possibility of deportation, his decision serves as a bizarre yet cautionary tale that no misdeed goes unnoticed.

The surveillance footage captured the thief nonchalantly trying on shoes, which sparked a lively debate. While some defended Egyptians, stressing that this man’s actions do not represent the whole community, others questioned whether the theft, though bold, was serious enough to warrant deportation.

So remember, whether you’re stepping into a mosque or any community space, it’s best to keep both eyes on your belongings!
