Thief replaced nine Warhol prints with fakes: Los Angeles police

 Reuters 14 September 2019

Nine original Andy Warhol prints worth an estimated $350,000 were quietly stolen from a Los Angeles movie business and replaced with fakes in an art heist that went undetected for years. The theft of the prints from the premises of Moviola was so seamless it was only discovered after one of the pieces was taken to be reframed. Los Angeles police are now investigating. (402 Words) - By Alex Dobuzinskis
