Roughly $300,000 worth of framed artwork was stolen from a Jersey City warehouse yesterday when a man posing as the truck driver sent to pick up the containers simply drove away with the art pieces, reports said.

The heist took place at 12:50 a.m. at a warehouse at 400 Duncan Ave., reports said.

 

The impostor truck driver was asked to fill out paperwork at the warehouse and did so, reports said.

But when the California-based container company realized the artworks were missing and asked the warehouse to check the paperwork, workers there realized that what the thief wrote down was illegible, reports said.
