A thief used a brick to smash through a window and break into a pet store in downtown Pittsburgh early Thursday morning.
Police said the incident happened at Animal Nature on Forbes Avenue.
Surveillance video shows a man with brick pacing outside of the store, before using the brick to smash through a window.
According to a Facebook post on the store’s fan page, the thief stole cash and a cash drawer.
“We're up to about $1,000 (in damage) with the door and the cash drawer,” said Nina Wolf of Animal Nature.
“This is sad. It’s a mom and pop store. Why would people want to vandalize a nice store like this?” said Robert Bosh.
Workers said the noise from the window breaking scared the store’s cats and they had to be moved to a back room Thursday.
So far, no arrests have been made.
