Agents swarm reputed mobster's home in Conn.
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ó FBI agents on Thursday searched the property of a reputed Connecticut mobster suspected of having information about the 1990 robbery of a Boston museum that remains the largest art heist in history.
Agents examined a car in the driveway, searched a wooded area and removed boxes of evidence from the ranch-style suburban home of 75-year-old Robert Gentile, who has been detained since February on federal drug and weapons charges.
A lawyer for Gentile, A. Ryan McGuigan, said the FBI returned to his client's property in Manchester, just outside Hartford, because the agency had a new warrant allowing the use of ground-penetrating radar to look for buried weapons. McGuigan said he believes agents are really looking for stolen paintings but will find no such thing.
