Toronto police have released a surveillance video of a man stealing a $45,000 Banksy artwork called Trolley Hunters from the wall of the newly opened exhibit.

According to police, the suspect entered the Sterling Road exhibit through an “interior door” around 5 am on Sunday, June 10 — just days before the show’s public opening.

Once inside, the suspect picked up the Trolley Hunters print and left the exhibit through the same interior door.
