Stradivarius Stolen in Milwaukee

Posted on Jan 31, 2014 by in News |

A rare Stradivarius violin, valued in the “high seven figures” was stolen from the arms of violinist Frank Almond in the parking lot following a concert performance. It was a daring theft, as reported here by the New York Times, and it underscores the growing danger surrounding works of art that have increased dramatically in value.

An amazing fact from the article: the FBI has 14 special agents assigned to investigate “art crime.”
