Thieves can be crafty too…

Bill Reid's Art.Art stolen from British Columbia’s UBC Museum of Anthropology has been recovered, but the culprits may still be at large.  Although three people were arrested, they were also released.  

In total, 12 Bill Reid pieces were stolen during the overnight break-in, as well as three Mexican pieces of art. Most pieces were made of gold. Police say the Mexican art pieces were disassembled sometime during or after the theft, but did not comment on how badly the pieces were damaged.

I guess we’ll have to wait until the end of CBC’s “Canada’s Next Top Art Thief” for justice. :)
