The sad thing is how stupid the guy is....hope he squeals like a pig!

Casey Klahn said...

No, I can't imagine. The suspect looked pretty strung out or tired, too.

Casey Klahn said...

Yeah, Cindy. Maybe he'll say who he was going to sell the piece to.

The thing about stolen art is, how do you brag that you own it?

Robin Samiljan said...

I never understood how criminal collectors could hang anything stolen, but maybe the art is for their eyes only?

Casey Klahn said...

Robin, maybe they live on the Island of Stolen Property.

What a mug. Troubled yoot, as Joe Pesci might say.

Casey Klahn said...

Bill, never mind all the other stuff Pesci would say.

I was in that San Francisco gallery just last year! It's filled with Chagall, Picasso, and some disturbing pieces by Odd Nerdrum.

I'm glad they caught the guy so quickly. And recovered the Picasso! It's a crazy world.
