The Federal Bureau of Investigation's list of the top art heists in history includes the largest property crime ever in the U.S.

That, among eight of the other heists on the list, remain unsolved.

The FBI keeps records of art heists in its art theft database. Not all stolen art crimes make the list, though. A stolen piece of art -- valued at $160 million, was stolen from the University of Arizona more than three decades ago. It was recently rediscovered when a Houston man sold it for $2,000 at a New Mexico antique store.
