Art Crime: FBI suspects mobster in the infamous Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist




Sounds like a movie:  Alleged mobster Robert Gentile suspected in connection with one of the biggest heist in museum history of over 12 paintings including works by Rembrandt, Degas, Vermeer and Manet from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum inBoston, MA in 1990.

The value of the artwork is over $500 million dollars and has been on the top of the FBI art crime unit list for years.  The FBI has listed a $5 million dollar reward for the return of the artwork.

This is the third time the FBI has raided Gentile’s home.  At this time, the FBI has only found a stash of guns.  It has not been disclosed yet what information, if any, the FBI recovered from the raid.
