FBI turns to Internet to solve $500 million Gardner heist
It was the largest property crime in U.S. history, one shrouded in mystery for 23 years. Now the agency is turning to cyberspace as it trumpets a breakthrough in the case.
Earlier today, the feds announced a breakthrough: The agency now knows the identity of the thieves and where the stolen art was transported. But in a bid to get out the word, the FBI has put together a Web site carrying updates about the mysterious case and cataloging the stolen objects of art -- as well as publicizing the $5 million reward put out by the Gardner Museum.
