Connecticut man suspected of ties to Gardner Museum heist in court on gun charges

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 05:17
By Richard Weizel MILFORD, Conn. (Reuters) - A Connecticut man who prosecutors believe has ties to the biggest art heist in U.S. history pleaded not guilty in federal court on Tuesday to gun charges he was arrested on last month. U.S. prosecutors in April said that Robert Gentile, 79, told an undercover FBI agent that he had access to paintings stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum a quarter-century ago. Gentile, who has a criminal record dating to the 1950s, on Tuesday pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in New Haven to charges of illegally selling a firearm to an undercover agent, according to one of his attorneys, Joseph Burns. Another of Gentile's attorneys, Ryan McGuigan, has contended that Gentile's arrest was intended to pressure him into revealing details of the long-unsolved $500 million art heist, of which McGuigan said Gentile denies any knowledge.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 05:03

Attorney General Loretta Lynch shake hands with Baltimore police officers during a visit to the Central District of Baltimore Police DepartmentNew U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday met with Baltimore officials and the family of a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries sustained in police custody last month and vowed to help the city pursue police reform. Lynch visited Baltimore days after the city's chief prosecutor brought criminal charges, including one murder charge, against six officers involved in the April 12 arrest of Freddie Gray. Gray's death was the latest in a series of unarmed black men involving police officers across the United States and provoked weeks of largely peaceful protests punctuated by a day of arson and looting in Baltimore on April 27. "We lost a young man's life and it begins to represent so many things." Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby said last Friday that there had been no legal basis for Gray's arrest.
