Neither Gentile nor anyone else has been charged in the art heist.
Durham said in court this year that the FBI believed Gentile had some involvement with stolen property related to the art heist. He said FBI agents had unproductive discussions with Gentile about the theft, but he didn’t elaborate. Durham also said the FBI believes Gentile is a made member of the Mafia.
After finding the weapons at Gentile’s home in February, federal agents returned in May in what McGuigan called a veiled attempt to find the stolen paintings. McGuigan said at the time that the FBI got a new warrant allowing the use of ground-penetrating radar to look for buried weapons, but he believed they really were looking for the artwork.
