Reflector: A copy of Munch’s original work: “The Scream”. Card: The Munch Heist. The Munch Heist: The Heist happened just after 11:00 AM on August the 22nd, 2004. Two perpetrators, armed with a loaded Smith&Wesson 357 Magnum stormed the museum, while one man waited in a car outside. The two burglars inside threatened gurds and visitors to lay down on the floor. They tore down “The Scream” and “­Madonna” from the wall, and got away unharmed. The tale of the ­escape and ­following investigation, and of how the paintings came back to its rightful owners is too long to be told here. We simply conclude: Everyone likes Munch.
