TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Artwork has been reportedly stolen from an Armory Park building and police are looking for the people responsible.

In a Facebook post by account "Frida de Tucson," five pieces of artwork done by Cristina Cardenas were allegedly stolen from 236 S. Scott Avenue. The post said the artwork was on a display exhibit with other artists of the Citizens Artist Collective. They believe the pieces were taken sometime on Saturday, March 25.

The Owls Club bar is in this building, but the artwork was displayed in a hallway that led to upstairs offices. The hall is open to the public during normal working hours. 

Cardenas told Tucson News Now that she valued the five paintings at more than $6,000. She feels violated by the thief.

"It's like when they go to your house and break into your house and take your valuables, your pieces," she said. "It really hurts my feelings. I mean, who could do that?"

According to the Tucson Police Department, a police report was filed by Cristina Cardenas on Wednesday, March 29.
