NEW YORK (AP) -- A man suspected of a bicoastal string of brazen art thefts is headed to face charges in New York after serving time in California for snatching a $275,000 Picasso pencil sketch from a San Francisco art gallery.
A person briefed on the investigation tells The Associated Press that Mark Lugo is set for arraignment Friday on grand larceny and other charges in art heists at two Manhattan hotels. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the matter before the arraignment.
It's unclear whether Lugo has a New York lawyer. His San Francisco attorney has called him "more like someone who was in the midst of a psychiatric episode" than a calculating art thief.
Lugo was publicly identified as a suspect in New York thefts after his July arrest in San Francisco, where he pleaded guilty.
