Woman charged with art theft from hospital

GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) -- A Montezuma woman has been arrested after police say she stole four paintings from a hospital.

Jean Morrissey, 56, was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree theft. Police say she took four paintings from the Grinnell Regional Medical Center.

Morrissey, also known as Jean Bustos, was charged after a police search of her home turned up the paintings missing from the medical center.

The art was valued at $1,800.

Morrissey was released from the Poweshiek County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond.
