Hoosier Workwear Outlet vandalized, burglarized Thursday morning

An unknown suspect broke a window and stole roughly $1,400 worth of merchandise from Hoosier Workwear Outlet early Thursday morning.

Police were called to the store at 207 S. Rogers St. around 3 p.m., Bloomington Police Department Lt. John Kovach said. Officers noted a broken front window upon arrival. 

The police believe a large rock lying on the sidewalk below the window was used to break the window, Kovach said. The suspect likely entered the building through the broken window in the early morning. 

A security camera in the shop showed the suspect is a white male. At the time of the crime, he wore a black bandana and black pants. 

Kovach said no safes inside Hoosier Workwear Outlet were tampered with. The owner told the police six Spyderco knives, 12 cans of pepper spray, two Carhart hats, a black bandana, approximately three backpacks and six or eight boonie style hats were stolen. He also thought sweatshirts could be missing from the store but was not sure. The owner valued the damage to the front window at $500.
