Earlier today, Christian Eiora announced that the warehouse for CLE Cigar Company was the latest in South Florida to be burglarized. Eiroa indicated that upwards of $800,000 of inventory was stolen from one of the company’s three warehouses.

“We do not have any other details as local police, the FBI and BATF are beginning their investigations,” said Eiora in a statement. “We urge customers to report to us any products being offered by any untraditional sources.”

The company specifically identified Eiroa, CLE Plus, Pura Sol and display trays amongst the items stolen. CLE joins a list of cigar manufacturers that have been burglarized including A.J. Fernandez, Alec Bradley, Florida Distributor, Inc. and Gurkha. Most of those distributors are in Broward County, north of Miami, where CLE’s warehouse is located.

CLE/Fabrica Unidas distributes Asylum, CLE, EH Cigars, Hechicera, Pura Soul and Wynwood.
