Passengers stole $12,800 worth of artwork
Two passengers of the 'Carnival Legend' werre believed to have stolen artwork worth almost $13,000 in October 2023, according to court documents in the US. A search warrant filed by the FBI in the District Court of Maryland last week said authorities were looking into federal charges relating to theft and the transportation of stolen goods. No one has been charged at this time. The cruise departed the US city of Baltimore for Bermuda on Sep 24 and returned on Sep 30, with an art auctioneer discovering the sculptures were missing from the ship’s art gallery on Oct 1. Court documents stated that CCTV footage from Sep 29 showed a couple – a man and a woman – walking into the gallery “empty-handed” at 2 a.m. but leaving just minutes later with items that were “consistent in appearance with the missing sculptures”. Marcus Glenn’s Tappin’ the Keys for the Love, which portrays a pianist playing an abstract set of keys while a heart looms in the background, is one of the sculptures that went missing, and is valued at $6,600. The other piece is Kiss the Sea by Robert Wyland, which shows two sea turtles facing each other, and is valued at $6,200.
