The Art of the Steal

This isn't exactly "breaking news."  Thieves hit a museum in Italy last November and made off with roughly $17 million in art work.  More than a dozen arrests have been made, and the security camera video's now been released.  You might be amused at these criminals going about their business.

Seventeen million dollars is nothing to sneeze at, but it's pocket change compared to the haul made at Boston's Gardner Museum -- a baker's dozen of works with an estimated value pegged at a cool $500 million.

It's a crime that remains unsolved . . . and today marks its 26th anniversary.

It's a thrill ride-and-a-half.  Find out for yourself!
