The Dallas Police Department believes that Brian Hernandez, who was upset with his girl, broke into the Dallas Museum of Art and damaged artwork that was worth millions of dollars.
A male suspect, age 21, was brought into jail on Wednesday night on suspicion of breaking into the Dallas Museum of Art and destroying artworks there with a combined worth of nearly $5 million. The man was taken into custody shortly after the incident.
The officials assert that Brian Hernandez stormed into the museum at ten o’clock at night and immediately began wreaking havoc thereafter he had been there for a short while. It is said that he broke a Greek amphora that dated back to the 6th century BC as well as a Greek pitcher that dated back to the 450 BC, each of which had an estimated worth of roughly $5 million. The incident took place in a display case.
A Caddo effigy bottle with a value of $10,000 and a bowl that dated back to the sixth century B.C. and had a value of $100,000 each was among the items that went destroyed.
Museum security was able to catch Hernandez, who, according to the authorities, was not carrying a weapon at the time of his detention. A statement made by Hernandez in the document indicates that the defendant “got upset at his girl, so he broke in and started trashing everything.” Hernandez’s words appear in the affidavit.
