Police Search for Woman Seen Mailing Stolen Art to Museum

NEW YORK (AP/Hamodia) —

The New York Police Department says it wants to question a woman caught on video mailing stolen art back to the MoMA PS1 museum.

Police said the woman was seen on surveillance video at a shipping store located at 223 Bedford Ave. in Brooklyn Thursday as she mailed two stolen photographs valued at $105,000. They were packaged in a large box she carried into the store. Police say the woman who mailed the pictures is in her 20s. She wore a dark cap, glasses and a black overcoat at the store.

Police say the two print photographs were found to be missing from the museum around midday Monday. There were no signs of forced entry into the building.

The pictures arrived by mail back at the museum Friday.

The MoMA PS1 is located on Jackson Ave. in Long Island City, Queens. It is a branch of the Museum of Modern Art dedicated to contemporary art.
