MIAMI – The FBI and French National Police worked undercover to bust an art thief linked to the 2007 armed robbery at the Musee des Beaux-Arts museum in Nice, France. Now the thief is headed off to prison.
A federal judge in Miami last week sentenced art thief Bernad Jean Ternus, a French National, to 5 years and 2 months in prison, the Justice Department said. Ternus met with undercover FBI agents and French National Police to fence the paintings, which included  the famous “The Lane of Poplars at Moret” by Alfred Sisley (shown in photo).
