Stealing art from a student?

I am appalled that in a city like Asheville there are people low enough to steal an art portfolio out of a parked car in an apartment complex.

My daughter is an art student at A-B Tech, and she went to her car [on a recent] morning only to find her portfolio and artwork missing. The thieves could have had the bike, but why just the art porfolio? My daughter worked hard on those drawings.

The police said the artwork wasn't of any value, so they couldn't help her find the thieves. What an absolute shame! I pray the thieves think about what they have done and return the artwork and portfolio. Being an artist is my daughter's dream.
