Artist sees opportunity in theft of sculptures from Bethesda museum

Bronze sculptures stolen from a Bethesda museum and vandalized were reportedly worth about $90,000. The thief allegedly sold them to a scrap dealer for $150.

The artworks are back at the Dennis and Phillip Ratner Museum, after a worker at Montgomery Scrap in Rockville realized he had bought stolen goods. But most were “damaged beyond repair,” Montgomery County police said Wednesday.
