LOS ANGELES (KGTV) -- Los Angeles police are looking for clues that will help lead them to the thieves that stole a trailer loaded with about $1 million worth of footwear.

The chassis container trailer was reported missing Aug. 6 from a business yard in the city of Torrance. It had been loaded with men's and women's shoes, according to a release from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police located the trailer two days later but all the footwear had been removed, officials said.

A tipster led detectives to a business in the city of El Monte where they recovered about $900,000 worth of the stolen shoes.

LAPD is asking anyone who may have information about the crime to contact Commercial Crimes Division Cargo Hijack Unit Detective Marc Zavala at (818) 832-7510, or Jeannette Santos at (818) 832-7511.
