DON'T STEP ON THE BLUE SUEDE SHOES!

But, unbelievably, the thieves don't take the blue suede shoes...

Thieves broke into the Elvis Presley museum in LAS VEGAS
earlier this week and made off with bounty worth over $300,000
(£180,000).

The raid, at Elvis-A-Rama, took just five minutes as the
criminals rammed a back door of the museum with a stolen truck, then used
lead pipes to break into three display cases.

They made off with rings, a gold-plated pistol and other belongings,
according to Rolling Stone.

However, the museum staff were relieved to discover that one of their
most prized possessions – a pair of blue suede shoes – were left
untouched.

The museum was established by Elvis Presley devotee Chris Davidson in 1999. His collection, built up over many years, houses more than 2,000 pieces.
