Alain Lacoursière Featured in Joshua Knelman's article in Globe & Mail: Art Theft Linked to Organized Crime

In Joshua Knelman's article in the Globe and Mail, Police cracking down on a hotbead of hot art in Quebec, Alain Lacoursière cites a link between stolen art and organized crime. Hell's Angels held "caches" of stolen art and a forged Cézanne that was headed for an auction house for a money laundering scheme.

Joshua Knelman is author of the book Hot Art: Chasing Thieves and Detectives through the Secret World of Stolen Art, published this month by Douglas & McIntyre. I have ordered it through Amazon.ca and look forward to reading it.
