Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada had art valued at over $239,000 stolen from his home in Sparta after hiring Francesco Bove to repair water damage. Bove covered the house's security cameras with towels and then moved himself and his girlfriend into it. Quesada's wife noticed the security cameras were only showing blacked-out screens and contacted the security company who claimed the cameras were working fine, presumably stating they were up to Marvel's quality control standards.

She had a friend check on the house who discovered the towels and informed them the house looked lived in. Quesada confronted Bove who admitted he was living there. Bove was fired immediately. 

Quesada was then contacted by a friend asking why he was selling a portrait of his wife. Realizing he kept that portrait in his Sparta house, Quesada feared the house was burglarized. Quesada called around and found an art dealer who paid Bove $5,000 for several pieces.

Police arrested Bove at his Brooklyn residence without incident.
