St. Louis police have arrested one man for the November 28 break-in of the Adriano Goldschmied store in the Central West End.

Marquan D. Bland, 19, of the Baden neighborhood, has been charged with second-degree burglary and stealing over $500.

Bland is in jail, with bond set at $30,000.

Police believe Bland looted the shop of more than $16,000 worth of designer denim with the help of four other men during the early-morning burglary late last year.

And what of the loot?
