Cleveland Police say a security guard at FirstEnergy Stadium caught five employees in the act of stealing Browns merchandise.

Police say on Sept. 22 at 3:00a.m. a security guard saw the five kitchen employees taking the items but couldn't catch them.

The guard says the suspects used a pole with a hook to grab the items from the Team Shop. Surveillance video also shows the men transferring a large box of items to a backpack.

About $3,000 worth of items were taken.

The employees have been suspended, pending an investigation.
