On 02-03-2021 at 1425 hours, officers responded to a report of a possible burglary to a storage unit. Upon arrival, the storage unit was found empty and the involved subjects were located on scene. The contents of the storage unit, artwork, had been loaded into a U-Haul truck, which was also still on scene. Through the investigation, officers learned that the items in question had been transferred to a group of subjects who would determine the final disposition of the items. Those items were stored within one storage unit on behalf of the group. Since that time, the group has had a differing opinion of control/disposition of the items and the storage unit lock was changed. Part of the group arrived at the storage unit today, removed the lock and removed the items they claimed belonged to them. The storage unit locking mechanism was damaged during this process. Other members of the group arrived and also claimed ownership on behalf of the items’ original artists. The situation was resolved with the items being left on scene with all parties being notified of the civil issue involved. Police stood-by to assure the peace was provided until the parties separated. Media was on scene.
