The Frazetta Heist – A Family Job? (UPDATED)

frankHeidi MacDonald links to a story in the Pocono Record, detailing the arrest of Alfonso Frank Frazetta, Frank Frazetta’s son, caught breaking in to the family’s art museum to steal ninety pieces of artwork, including work by his own father.

Heidi intimates that the identity of Alfonzo’s accomplice will make the story even more bizarre.

I’ve also been informed that this event happened a few weeks after the Frazetta family finally sold one of Frank Frazetta’s major works – the Berzerker – for $1,000,000.

Which may have brought the value of the work to the foreground a little for certain people.

UPDATE: The Pocono Record has updated, naming Frank Bush and Kevin Clement as accomplices. Heidi points out that Clement is the organiser of the Chiller Theatre Expo horror conventions held twice a year in New Jersey. The paper continues;

According to the police affidavit, Frank Jr. told the responding trooper he had Frank Sr.’s permission to enter his museum “by any means,” and move all the paintings to a storage facility. The trooper called the owner, who told the law enforcement official he had not given his son permission to either be in the museum or remove paintings from it.

They report infighting within the family, and Alfonzo’s wife is quoted as saying that he was moving the paintings to a different secure location.
