HOUSTON, TX - The suspect left behind blood and all he or she got in return was a handful of boots.

Houston Police are looking for the burglar who broke in the Cavender's Boot City along I-10 East overnight Thursday. The assistant manager says she got a call from the alarm company, warning her there had been a break-in. It appears the suspect smashed through the door, where officers found blood mixed with glass, before grabbing about a dozen pairs of boots.

Store staff say they won't know exactly how much was stolen until they can do inventory later Thursday.
