Warhol Classics Stolen From Private Collector
Los Angeles police are hunting for a multi-million dollar collection of Andy Warhol artwork stolen from a private collector earlier this month (Sep09).
Authorities were called out to the home of businessman Richard Weisman after he found 10 pieces of his Warhol collection had been taken.
The paintings, hailing from the 1970s and depicting images of Muhammad Ali, O.J. Simpson, and other athletes, were noticed missing by a staff member.
L.A. Detective Mark Sommer says, "This was a very clean crime. (The home) wasn't ransacked."
Weisman is offering a $1 million ($666,000) reward for the safe return of the artworks.
