In this morning’s New York Times -
Octave Durham, who stole two Vincent van Gogh paintings in 2002, is an expert thief. After the heist of another van Gogh from a Dutch museum in March, The Times asked Durham for insight on his line of work.
“Look at that,” Durham said as he watched security footage of the recent theft. “His gear is not even professional. If you’re a professional, you’re fully in black. He’s got jeans and Nike sneakers on.”
