Other items were also taken, but Herrera did not have the specifics on anything other than the Iron Man suit worn by Robert Downey Jr.
The costume is valued in the mid-six figures, police said.
There are currently no suspects. The case remains under investigation.
Downey played Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) for the first time in the 2008 film. He has since appeared as the character in nine Marvel movies, the most recent being Avengers: Infinity War.
Considered a B comic book character before he landed the role, Downey has helped make Tony Stark a household name and leading star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He will reprise the character again next year in the untitled fourth Avengers film.
