Frank Frazetta’s $20 million art collection to be relocated following son’s attempted theft

The Pocono Record of Pennsylvania reports that the $20 million art collection of renowned SF&F artist Frank Frazetta has been removed from the family museum in Marshalls Creek and will be permanently relocated elsewhere. The announcement follows the December 9th alleged attempt by Frazetta’s son, Alfonso “Frank Jr.,” to steal the collection amid a family feud over the aging artist's legacy. In related news, WNEP-TV reports that Frank Jr., who was arrested over last week's attempted theft, was released from jail late Wednesday afternoon after posting bail. His preliminary hearing was continued until January 6, 2010. He is charged with burglary, criminal trespassing and theft.
