CLEARWATER, Fla.—Florida authorities are investigating the theft of an autographed wrestling shoe once worn by Hulk Hogan.

Clearwater police reported Wednesday that the shoe—valued at $5,500—was stolen from the professional wresting icon's Clearwater Beach shop.

A report states that four white females—possibly from Michigan on spring break—came into Hogan's Beach Shop Sunday evening. Four minutes later, a large statue of Hogan fell over outside, and store workers were temporarily distracted.

Police say that's when a woman grabbed the shoe. Employees didn't realize the shoe was missing until Tuesday. They discovered the theft when they reviewed the store's security footage.
