Art theft via backhoe

You don't see that very often. From the AP: "Police say a Pennsylvania man used a backhoe to break into a museum owned by his father -- the renowned fantasy artist Frank Frazetta -- in an attempt to steal 90 paintings worth $20 million." You also don't see many museums described as being "owned" by someone, so this is a pretty strange story all around at this point. [via]
