Decades-Old Art Heist Solved

The theft of millions of dollars in artwork from a Stockbridge man 28 years ago has finally been solved. Seven paintings were stolen, including a Cezanne now worth almost $30 million.

Retired lawyer Robert Mardirosian says he had the paintings in his possession since the man who stole them sought his legal advice in 1978.

Bob Oakes speaks with Robert Mardirosian about this art theft mystery.
