FBI FINDS ART LOOT CALDER, KANDINSKY AND DIEGO VOCI

 “More than 1,000 pieces of artwork at a storage facility the fugitive rented in Boulder City, about 25 miles east of Las Vegas.”

This money laundering scam artist obviously knew his art selecting works of well-known masters that would be redeemable for cash at some future date. Among the master selections, the loot included a sepia watercolor (link at bottom of post) by our hero #Diego Voci.

The #warrant search at the storage facility was an effort to recover proceeds on behalf of alleged #fraud victims.
