Would-Be Art Thief Fails in Heist Attempt…Twice

November 22, 2006  | 

In October of 2005, a male suspect entered Kenneth Behm Galleries at Bellevue Square Mall in Bellevue, Wash. Taking his time to look around, he finally grabbed a statue from its place on display. Part of the display fell to the ground, causing the suspect to panic and flee the store.

A little over a year later, on Nov. 14, 2006, the same suspect returned to Kenneth Behm Galleries. Having had 12 months to revamp his plan, this time he brought a female accomplice. Once again he grabbed the same statue from the display, and again part of the display fell to the ground. Confronted by an employee of the Gallery, the suspect and his accomplice (again) fled the store.

The sculpture in question is crafted in glass and valued at $8,500. It is part of a two-piece set valued collectively at $13,000. Both pieces together are called “Duet.”

Both times, the suspect was clearly visible on the gallery security cameras. The video quality is high for a security system. And while there is no serious threat of him becoming a master art thief, the Bellevue Police would still like to talk to him and are requesting help from the public in locating him.
