A break-in at one of Cleveland's closed fire stations.

The crime, which was discovered on Monday, happened at Engine # 9 on Woodland Avenue. The station has been closed since June 1st.

Police tell 19 Action News the suspect(s) cut the back fence and broke the lock off the kitchen window to gain access into the station.

The suspect(s) swiped a computer, a computer tower, copper pipe and two hot water tanks. A number of other items were also taken, but inventory is still being done at this time.

It also appears the suspect(s) ate some ice cream and left a spoon. The spoon could be a lucky break for police, because it was taken for DNA testing.
