ALLENTOWN, PA (AP).- A Pennsylvania man used a
backhoe to break into a museum owned by his father — the pioneering fantasy
artist Frank Frazetta — in an attempt to steal 90 paintings valued at $20
million, police said Thursday.
State police charged Alfonso Frank
Frazetta, 52, of Marshalls Creek, with theft, burglary and trespass after they
say he was caught loading the artwork into his trailer and SUV. The elder
Frazetta, 81, is renowned for his work on characters including Conan the
Barbarian, Tarzan and Vampirella. He was in Florida at the time of the
theft.
