Library official admits stealing painting

An Odd Little Story out of Syracuse, NY, on Thomas Dydyk.
He has reached an agreement with prosecutors that allowed him to plead guilty to a reduced misdemeanor charge of petit larceny after selling a century-old painting by John Dodgson Barrow for $200 at a garage sale. He had stolen the valuable painting from a library storage room. Dydyk sold the painting to the owner of a Skaneateles antiques shop, who recognized it as a valuable Barrow work.
