CLEVELAND — A church in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood was burglarized earlier this month and the thief absconded with everything but the kitchen sink, according to a Cleveland police report.

The break-in happened sometime between Aug. 7 and Aug. 11 at Little Star Missionary Baptist Church, 11610 Superior Ave.

The report states that the church was locked up on Aug. 7, but when the church’s deacon arrived on Aug. 11, he found the building ransacked.

According to the report, the thief made off with a mini fridge, computer monitor, two jugs of change totaling $275, a mini stereo, a VCR/DVD player, school supplies, cleaning supplies, two microphones, one soundbox, two speaker transmitters and a metal pipe from the church’s water heater.

After pilfering the items, the thief used stereo wire to tie the building’s doors shut, the report stated.

Police have not named any suspects.
