BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts high school student says she’s a little bit flattered that someone stole a piece of her artwork on display at a state office building, but mostly she’s just sad and puzzled.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

Emily Moreau, a 16-year-old junior at Chelmsford High, says she was told that three well-dressed men entered the state Transportation Building in Boston at about 2:30 a.m. Monday, went straight to the 9-by-12-inch colored pencil drawing she calls “Breakfast,” took it down and walked away.

The drawing of a fried egg in a pan with a human eye where the yolk should be won a silver medal in the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Competition.

Moreau called the theft a “backhanded compliment,” but says she’s mostly upset.

She still has a photo of the piece.

Police are investigating.
