Alleged mobster suspected in connection with 1990 art heist – suspect's attorney addresses allegations

Law enforcement agents conducted a search Thursday on the Manchester property of Robert Gentile, 75, who was arrested in February on federal drug charges.

Although the FBI's warrant was for weapons, the suspect's attorney Ryan McGuigan says authorities are actually hunting for hundreds of millions of dollars in stolen art that went missing from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston more than 20 years ago.

On Starting Point today, McGuigan explains why he thinks that the officials were looking for the lost art pieces and responds to skepticism that his client knows something about the heist.
