Caught On Camera: Thieves Attempt To Steal Banksy's Artwork In New York

BRITISH guerrilla artist Banksy's final piece in New York lasted just six hours after being installed. The final New York artwork was hauled off by cops after 'thieves' allegedly tired to steal it hours after it was unveiled. The piece - an inflatable tag made of balloons reading 'Banksy' - was pulled down by two men who were then physically attacked by fans of the artist who had come to see the work. Police intervened and arrested the alleged thieves before bundling the oversized letters into the back of their van. Police later confirmed three men were arrested during the incident.
