The furry thief took footwear from people's homes in the Zehlendorf neighbourhood, according to local news reports.

All types of shoes were stolen by the fox, including trainers, slippers and sandals.

The thief was eventually unmasked by Christian Meyer after he had noticed that his running shoes had disappeared.

After posting about the theft on social media, Meyer soon discovered that he was just one victim of the thieving creature.

He later spotted the fox in the area and took a photo of the animal ''caught red-handed with a pair of blue flip flops in his mouth'' and managed to uncover the haul of footwear.

However, he is yet to find his missing running shoes.
