Expensive artwork stolen from Hamptons socialite
SOUTHAMPTON (WABC) -- An empty mansion in Southampton became a crime scene after burglars stole paintings worth more than a quarter of a million dollars.
Police say more than a dozen paintings vanished from the $12 million home of lawyer and socialite Joanne "Jo" Davis Hallingby.
She inherited it from her late husband, billionaire Paul Hallingby, Jr., who helped develop the Javits Center in Manhattan.
A reward up to $5,000 is being offered.
Anyone with information should call police.
