FBI: Art Criminals Nothing But Mopes
The FBI’s Art Crime Team. Thirteen agents stationed across the United States to investigate everything from art counterfeiting to thefts of cultural objects. The Art Crime Unit was formed after the looting of Iraq’s national museum in 2003. Unlike Hollywood films of sexy and handsome art thieves, members of this unit cite that for the most part, art thieves and criminals are nothing but “mopes.”
