AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Deputies in northeast Ohio say dozens of pairs of pricey athletic shoes seized in a drug case are going to be distributed to needy kids.

The Akron Beacon Journal (https://bit.ly/1eJy092 ) reports the 48 pairs of sneakers were seized by the Summit County Sheriff’s Office from three men who were convicted in February of trafficking heroin.

On Monday deputies delivered the boxes and bags of high-end shoes to the Children Services Board to be distributed to children through the agency’s Clothing Center program.

Other items seized from the convicted drug dealers, including a watch, expensive sunglasses, smartphones, gift cards, TVs, video games and computers, are being distributed the Children Services Board and other charities.
