Comments Off on CCTV records theft of prints by cult artist Banksy
CCTV has recorded the theft from an art gallery of two prints by cult artist Banksy worth more than £16,000. Police are searching for a man and woman who smashed their way by using a street sign into Art Republic in New Compton Street, London. CCTV cameras caught the man entering the shop and grabbing two prints while the woman stayed in the street as a look-out. They then made off on foot.
Works by Banksy, who shot to fame with his anonymous graffiti, are popular with thieves. Ten items worth about £10,000 were stolen from a branch of Art Republic in Brighton in 2007.
