Russian art thief casually takes painting from art gallery

The incident happened on Sunday at the busy Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Russia. CCTV footage caught footage of the man casually strolling up to a painting worth $182,000 (£139,000), taking it off the wall and strolling slowly out of the gallery as visitors look on. Because of his relaxed attitude, everyone assumed that he worked there. Moscow Police later identified the suspect, arrested him and recovered the painting, a mountain scene in Crimea painted by Russian artist Arkhip Kuindzhi.
