In a viral TikTok, a Nike shoplifter was captured getting caught by a police officer after her getaway driver left her behind.

Content creator tessibaby1 posted the video that showed the shoplifter getting ditched by her accomplice who drove away, leaving her alone with stolen Nike products.

“When shoplifters take ALL the Nike but forget to unlock the door…” a text-overlay in the video read, as the woman was seen in the parking lot of the store she burgled from.

In the 22-second clip, the woman was trying to open the back door of a car, before it just drove away, abandoning her with the stolen goods in hand.

She then dropped a large amount of gray Nike sweatpants to the floor, before noticing that there was a police officer running toward her.

The woman quickly took off running, but the cop caught her eventually. She then walked away as she got handcuffs placed on her hands behind her back.
