 It wasn't your typical Cinderella story. But in the end the shoe fit and 29-year-old Tyrell Copper found himself in jail.

Police say Copper and another man went into a Palm Beach Gardens Home Depot store on Tuesday and tried to take two bags of weed killer without paying.

Someone attempted to stop the pair but Copper ran to a getaway car. The problem? He ran right out of his shoe, which was left behind in the store.

Police spotted the car and pulled it over outside a Lowe's store.

When police asked the occupants to get out, they noticed Copper was missing his right Nike shoe.

Police said the shoe left behind matched.
