$613 Million Oops!

From the Globe and Mail, a story about a huge art theft that's actually small potatoes compared to some.
A thief stole five paintings possibly worth hundreds of millions of euros, including major works by Picasso and Matisse, in a brazen overnight heist at a Paris modern art museum, police and prosecutors said Thursday...

The intruder entered by cutting a padlock on a gate and breaking a museum window, the Paris prosecutor's office said.

The prosecutor's office initially estimated the five paintings' total worth at as much as $613 million (U.S.) 
 That's pretty brazen.  But it's not as brazen as this;

Oops. That's CRAVEN...

Plus it looks like the art thief actually had a plan.
