CLEVELAND — Less than a day after reopening after having been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Cleveland Clothing Co. was burglarized by someone who broke into the store by throwing a brick through a window.
The store made the announcement on Instagram Saturday.
According to Cleveland Clothing Co., the burglar stole some women’s T-shirts but was caught minutes later by police.
“You can break glass, but you can’t break us,” the store said.
Most of the merchandise was recovered and is now quarantined.
Police haven't released any information regarding the burglary.
Cleveland Clothing Co. is located on the corner of East 4th Street and Euclid Avenue.

We haven’t even been open 24 hours and someone thought it would be cool to throw a brick through our window, steal some women’s tees and only to get arrested 30 minutes later....you can break glass, but you can’t break us. Thank you to the great officers at the CPD. We recovered most of what was taken (it’s quarantined) some is still strewn down E. 6th Street. So enjoy your CLE freebie I guess...anyway we’re open downtown for now until another window falls then we may have to rethink some inventory strategies and maybe go back online....we only have so many windows 😂 Thank you all that have supported us online over the past 60 days? It’s been so heartwarming! Please continue to support all of our local businesses. We need you now more than ever.
