Rembrandt Drawing Stolen from Ritz-Carlton



MARINA DEL REY, CA. -- An unknown art thief made off with a Rembrandt drawing entitled, The Judgement, valued at $250,000, from an art exhibit at the Ritz Carlton in Marina del Ray, Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials said Sunday.

The drawing disappeared sometime between 10:20 and 10:35 p.m. Saturday, said the Sheriff's spokesman. Investigators believe the thief orchestrated a well-planned heist to get the Rembrandt out of the building while a curator was distracted.

"Our detectives are reviewing the hotel security video for information identifying those involved," the spokesman said. "The hotel has top quality security. We believe this was a well-thought out and well-planned theft." The Ritz-Carlton has some of the best hotel security in the nation," he commented. "We're confident that our leads, and the surveillance video will help us solve this." If you have any information, please contact LAPD, ASAP
