A truckload of art worth $6.6 million was stolen out of a warehouse in Madrid in November, but it wasn’t “an inside job” since a clueless someone just tried to sell a $1,054,560 Eduardo Chillida sculpture for $40 at a scrapyard. This is why you do your research.
The Spanish cops say that “it now appears more likely that we are dealing with amateurs” who can’t tell art that looks like a piece of iron from a piece of iron. It’s ok. The European Commission can’t either.
