EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) - 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.

But as soon as he tried to leave, loss prevention officers jumped into action and 18-year-old Sylas Schmiedel was arrested.

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