Was Enno Tianen wearing a fake mustache over his real mustache?!
  • Was Enno Tianen wearing a fake mustache over his real mustache?!

Last month an art thief disguised as Matt Damon in The Informant! (above left) snuck into the offices of Mark Ecko’s Complex magazine on 23rd Street, security code and all, and stole a painting by KAWS valued at $100,000 right off the wall. He was caught on an elevator security camera, and now the NYPD has identified the perp as 31-year-old Enno Tianen (above right).

The only other information that the NYPD provided to NY1 is that Tianen also sometimes goes by Lewy (pronounced like “Louie”). So if you bought a KAWS painting from a guy named Louie, Louis and Lou on Craigslist at a 150 percent mark-up, give the Crime Stoppers hotline a call.
