On Wednesday night, a man broke into the Dallas Museum of Art and caused damage estimated at $5.153 million, according to police.

A man identified by police as 21-year-old Brian Hernandez was arrested late Wednesday night at the museum after breaking his way inside and destroying several objects.

It is alleged that Brian Hernandez, 21, destroyed three ancient Greek objects before his capture: a vase from the sixth century BC, a bowl from 450 BC, and a bowl from 550-530 BC.

He also smashed a Caddo bottle and destroyed other forms of property, including furniture.

The arrest document said Hernandez smashed the museum’s glass front entrance with a metal chair at around 9:40 p.m. and, once inside, intentionally damaged or destroyed $5,153,000 worth of artwork including numerous utensils and statues.

A guard told police after the motion sensor exploded that he and another guard went to investigate the hallway and found the man.

The guards asked him what he was doing, and he said: “He got angry with his girl, so he broke into the house and started destroying property.”

According to the police, Hernandez admitted, and the museum determined that he was defenseless and acting alone.

Police said Hernandez is accused of criminal acts greater than or equal to $300,000 and is being held at the Dallas County Jail.

A museum security guard called the police after finding Hernandez, and law enforcement officials say the suspect also called 911 on himself from inside the museum.

Other items were also destroyed, including a computer, telephone, seat, and signs.

Police said final assessments of damage incurred inside the museum may change based on the final assessment by the museum’s curator and insurance provider.

Pictures of damaged and destroyed artworks have yet to be published.

Hernandez has been booked into the Dallas County Jail for criminal mischief greater than $300,000 and is on $100,000 bail.

During an interview with investigators, Hernandez admitted to destroying property, police said.
Prison records did not mention a lawyer.
