Police: Man with Eye Patch Robbed South End Metro PCS

Police are looking for a man with an eye patch who reportedly made off with $ 600 from a South End Metro PCS on Tuesday.  Boston Police Officers responded to a robbery in progress at 776 Tremont Street at about 3:35 p.m. on June 18. The store’s clerk told police she buzzed the suspect into the store because she recognized him from prior business. However, she said the suspect walked into the store with his hand in his pocket and told the clerk to give him money and not look at him. The victim took out about $ 600 and handed it to the suspect. The suspect told the victim to stop looking at him and get on the ground as he fled out the door, onto Tremont Street in an unknown direction. The only description given to police was that the man was wearing an eye patch. Police are still on the lookout for the suspect.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

FBI: We Know Who Robbed the Gardner Museum

FBI officials announced today they know who committed one of the biggest art heists in history, but they still need the public’s help to locate the 13 missing pieces of art.  “The FBI believes with a high degree of confidence in the years after the theft the art was transported to Connecticut and the Philadelphia region and some of the art was taken to Philadelphia where it was offered for sale by those responsible for the theft,”  said Richard DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI office. “With that same confidence we have identified the thieves who are members of a criminal organization with a base in the mid-Atlantic states and New England.”  Officials believe the art was smuggled into Connecticut and eventually made its way into Philadelphia. At that point, the trail for the missing masterpieces goes cold. The FBI believes an organized-crime organization based in the mid-Atlantic states coordinated the crime. Because the investigation is still ongoing, the FBI noted they could not release further details into the identities of the suspects.  FBI officials also noted that the statue of limitations has passed on the original crime, the thefts of the painting, but there is still potential criminal liability for concelaning the paintings or possessing stolen property. However, U.S. Attorney General Carmen Ortiz noted that immunity is on the table for anyone who contributes information leading to the discovery of the paintings. To help keep the public in the process, the bureau launched a new Gardner heist website. The site features sketches of the thieves, images of the lost art, background on the crime and information for anyone who want to contact the FBI with new information about the crime. Monday was the 23rd anniversary of the heist, which took place in 1990. According to the Museum’s own history of the theft, the robbers dressed as police officers and asked a security guard to let them in. “Once inside, the thieves asked that the guard come around from behind the desk, claiming that they recognized him and that there was a warrant out for his arrest. The guard walked away from the desk and away from the only alarm button,” wrote the museum on its website. The thieves then had the guard, Richard Abath, call the second guard on duty and the two were separated and bound. The thieves took 13 pieces of art, including works by Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer, Govaert Flinck, Edgar Degas and Edouard Manet. In recent months, however, the security guard, once thought a hapless victim, has come under closer scrutiny, according to The Boston Globe. Richard Abath was found bound by duct tape and handcuffs […]
