Station16 – Street Art Heist

Here’s what Station16 gallery wrote on their site:
“What seemed like a regular Monday morning at Station16 gallery… turned out to be the scene of a crime. Sometime between November 2nd and November 4th, Station16 gallery was broken into. The thieves made off with over 50,000$ worth of original art and prints. The stolen pieces do not appear to be random, as some were selected and removed from the wall.
