DETROIT (AP) - Officials say thousands of dollars of equipment was stolen from an art gallery in Detroit’s Eastern Market area.

The Detroit Free Press reports (https://on.freep.com/1h7MalE ) the theft took place the weekend of May 10 at the Red Bull House of Art. Project Manager Karolina Biernacka says the theft, which was recorded by video surveillance, was a “major blow” to the gallery.

The House of Art launched in 2012 and also serves as a work space for artists. Biernacka says the man seen on surveillance had been in the gallery before.

Biernacka says no art was stolen, but the man nearly cleaned out the gallery’s tool shop. The gallery has since been able to replace stolen items.
