Hesse: Police arrest art dealer convicted of fraud

Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) - At Frankfurt Airport, the police arrested a British art dealer wanted by the United States. The 73-year-old woman was on a plane from Vienna and wanted to go to Edinburgh in Scotland, as the federal police announced on Thursday in Frankfurt.

According to the information, the convicted fraudster cheated collectors out of a total of almost half a million dollars by selling counterfeit paintings online in 2007. Because of this, a US court sentenced her to one year in prison. After her arrest during the stopover on Wednesday, the 73-year-old should be presented to a German magistrate.
