The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office is asking you to look out for a good deal on some stolen art.

They released surveillance video from a self-storage in Pojoaque.  Deputies say a white or silver SUV drove in, cut the locks on a storage unit, and drove out with the art strapped to the roof.  The owner of the art says the value of all the paintings is around $37,000.

"They're one of a kind by a famous Peruvian artist Machicado and they were just there temporarily.  We had just moved to the area and we were just storing them there on a temporary measure until we had a more permanent place and this is what happened," the owner said.

Investigators say the suspect is driving a silver or white Toyota 4Runner with a roof rack.  They believe it is a 2000 to 2005 model with damage to the passenger side door.  If you see the SUV or if you come across the art, call the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office at 505-428-3720 or Crime Stoppers at 505-955-5050.
