Looted Art, Scandal at Four So Cal Museums!

From NYTIMES: "LOS ANGELES — Federal agents raided a Los Angeles gallery and four museums in Southern California on Thursday, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as part of a five-year investigation into the smuggling of looted antiquities from Thailand, Myanmar, China and Native American sites."

This is far better than a Hollywood drama. For more details check out the NY TIMES or LA TIMES articles.
