Another Art Theft

I mentioned the $27 million Pebble Beach art theft below. The Edmonton Sun reports on a much smaller, and less complicated, theft from a Toronto gallery:

"The art rustlers threw a rock through the front window of Gallery Gevik just after 1:30 a.m., picked up the three paintings -- worth as much as $60,000 -- and fled the ritzy downtown neighbourhood before the cavalry arrived in response to the security alarm that was set off."

Mark Durney
: "Because this theft appears to be so basic, it would not surprise me to find that an individual from the Toronto area stole the paintings to simply pay for his own 'fix.'"
