James Biear, a chauffeur, is charged with wire fraud and mail fraud for stealing several art pieces and heirlooms including a Warhol and selling it to a Pennsylvania art dealer for $220,000.

Biear’s now-former employer noticed his Warhol Heinz 57 box missing from his Greenwich Village apartment. He then contacted the FBI.
