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.
