Federal law enforcement officials said today that they have identified the people who stole $500 million worth of masterworks in a heist from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990. They said they’ve determined where the artworks traveled in the years after the robbery, considered the greatest art theft in history.
