Famed art thief accused in robbery
Adrug dispute led to arrest, police say
A notorious art thief, Myles Connor chronicled his criminal exploits in “The Art of the Heist,” recounting a legendary career in which no museum was off limits. Investigators at one point even thought he might have information on the legendary unsolved heist from the Gardner Museum. But Connor’s latest alleged caper was a far cry from artful. Connor, 69, was arrested Thursday on charges of robbing two women outside a convenience store in Woonsocket, R.I., following a drug dispute.
