BOSTON (AP) — The FBI has announced a new campaign aimed at recovering art valued at up to $500 million that was stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990.
The agency believes it knows the identities of the thieves, but it still doesn't know where the art is. It's seeking help in bringing home the 13 paintings, including works by Rembrandt, Manet, Degas and Vermeer.
On Monday, the 23rd anniversary of the theft, authorities announced a campaign that includes a dedicated FBI website on the theft, video postings on FBI social media sites, and digital billboards. There's also a $5 million reward by the museum.
The FBI won't identify the thieves, but says they belonged to a criminal organization based in New England and the mid-Atlantic states.
