Police hunting for Brooklyn neighborhood art heist suspects
Did you see something odd on Wednesday evening, May 5, at The Tristan, the new apartment building on Milwaukie Avenue, at 1415 S.E. Pardee Street?
Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Burglary Division detectives are asking for information about an unusual crime: The theft of valuable art from the lobby of the recently built apartment building that evening.
Investigators learned from the victim that two unknown thieves used a vehicle to push open a security garage gate and gain entrance to the building. Four art pieces by artist Kayla Silber, valued in the thousands of dollars, were stolen from the lobby of the apartment building.
According to detectives, surveillance video shows the suspect vehicle may have been a Volkswagen Tiguan. Surveillance video also shows two suspects – one appearing to be a woman, wearing blue jeans, tan boots, and a blue hoodie; and a man, wearing a maroon and black athletic suit, and a black mask.
