Art Theft And Organized Crime (ISN)

Morgan Russell, a graduate student here at Mercyhurst, just had a short article published by ISN concerning the connection between art theft and organized crime. The article was a bit of an eye-opener for me as I was not aware of just how much money (upwards of $6 billion) organized crime is making off of art theft.

Nice piece. I too was surprised to see its ranking as third most prominent form of organized crime.

One correction: ARCA stands for the Association for Research into Crimes against Art.
