Bizarre erotic art heist unravels

(WPTV) Scorned lovers. Millions of dollars of missing artwork. It was part of a bizarre investigation to say the least for police in the quiet town of Lantana, Florida.

Now one police officer is finally speaking out about how his team cracked the case.

Nicholas Zoullas, 80, of New York City, kept about 200 pieces of very expensive artwork in a home he bought for his mistress on Hypoluxo Island.

After a falling out with his girlfriend, the art disappeared.

Lantana Police officer Eddie Tavcar says it was like something out of a movie.

“It was overwhelming. An ex-girlfriend, flashy cars, a couple of Bentleys, two Ferraris,” recounts Tavcar.

Tavcar and his team had a complex mission: Find the millions of dollars of stolen art.
