What sounds odd about this story? Someone that would have so many items of that value just sitting on the floor or that they blame the house’s owner for not having adequate security?
The stolen pieces include one by Jackson Pollock, three by G.H. Rothe, one by Matisse, four by Miro, two by Rembrandt, a Renoir and a van Gogh.
While it’s unclear exactly how much the art pieces are worth, Marohn said, the Pollock’s estimated value ranges from $20 million to $60 million. The other art pieces are collectively estimated at $7 million.
The discovery of the theft was made Friday, Marohn said, and a bedroom window was broken. “The owner of the property has been put on notice several times about security issues at the house,” he said.
