ICE Searches Museums

Statuette of BuddhaUS Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are searching four museums in California looking for antiquities allegedly smuggled from south east Asia: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Bowers Museum, the Pacific Asia Museum and the Mingei International Museum. It seems genuine antiques were smuggled into the USA under Made in Thailand stickers and then donated to the museums in order to claim tax.
