Why a Street Criminal Stole a Multi-Million-Dollar Violin | Vanity Fair

Why a Street Criminal Stole a Multi-Million-Dollar Violin | Vanity Fair.

If you like fascinating stories about true crime, here is a fun read.  It features the dumb criminal, the chatty get-away driver/wife, and a determined police chief that knows the historical significance of a Stradivarius violin. And… it’s not a long read.

The article brings up an important question, which the thieves didn’t consider: You stole it, now what?  Another is why would you want to steal this item when you can’t play it and you can’t sell it?  Even though it is worth $6 million, no one will buy it for that much.   It seems the robber has an ego, and one that exceeds his planning and skills.
