CLEVELAND -- It wasn't Monday night's storm but someone wielding a stolen front-end loader that damaged three businesses on Lakeshore Boulevard Monday night.

Someone swiped a front-end loader from a fenced-in construction site nearby, started it up, then rammed onto the back of the three stores -- First American Loan Check Cashing, JoJo's restaurant and Family Dollar.

The back of all the businesses was destroyed and the walls are still too unstable for police to go inside to see if anything was stolen.
