Meanwhile, in San Francisco

When two men stole a $200,000 Picasso drawing from a gallery in San Fransisco this week, the police got a lead based off the security footage from a neighboring restaurant. Allegedly, the suspect's decision to wear loafers without socks was a key factor in identifying the man. (Guess that isn't as much of a thing out West?) Other than that, the security footage also showed the man carrying a piece of art under his arm, so that might have played a part in it, too. [Refinery 29]
