Learn More About Art Theft
Each year, over 7 billion dollars worth of art, jewelry and antiques are stolen from museums, galleries, libraries and homes. Some of the thefts are insurance fraud, some are crimes of convenience, but much of it is the work of organized crime in order to fund drug deals, arm sales and terrorist activities. In terms of money, it’s the third largest crime worldwide. And hundreds of millions of dollars of reward money is waiting to be earned. A stolen work of art is a stolen piece of our history.
