Vancouver Art Thief

Who would’ve thought that there are everyday art thieves.  I mean don’t they pretty much only exist on film these days?

Thieving art, isn’t exactly like stealing tools, money, candy, or transit fare.  I’d imagine stolen art is pretty hard to get rid of. First of all art is pretty unique and hence traceable through sales quite  easily, especially if it’s famous art.  Art is also in the eye of the beholder, much like beauty. So finding someone who likes it would be hard too.

Well as a result an art thief has been caught by the Vancouver Police.  Good job VPD! Most of the art pieces were stolen from apartments in the Fairview area.  If you were burglarized the Police has recovered quite a few pieces of art and it can viewed at the VPD site here.
