Their 69-year-old owner reported them missing from the Crozier Fine Arts warehouse on Bayard St. in Williamsburg Aug. 16.

Crozier, in turn, acquired the Bayard St. facility, from Cirkers in January 2017.

Iron Mountain spokesman Christian Potts said the NYPD notified the company of the theft last month.

“Crozier is working cooperatively with the NYPD on the investigation, and is committed to determining the status of the alleged missing items,” he said.
