LAFAYETTE, La. — Lafayette artist Herb Roe had several pieces of his artwork stolen from his gallery just before Christmas and is asking to get them back.

Roe says that when he arrived at the warehouse building on Garfield Street where he works on Wednesday, Dec. 23, he noticed that four pieces of artwork were missing from the wall of a communal gallery area.

Roe says that that nothing else was missing and that there was no sign of a break in.

"They have a keypad access on the doors, so you can't just come in from the street," said Roe. "It was somebody who has access to the building somehow."

He adds that there were no security cameras installed in the building at the time so there is no footage of who may have taken the artwork.

Roe says he would like to get the artwork pieces back and has filed a police report.
