1. The masked thief who broke into the Oakland Museum of California earlier this week and made off with a gold artifact was likely the same burglar who stole gold nuggets in November, the Chron and Trib report. In Monday’s break-in, the thief swiped a gold box, owned by the City of Oakland, that was worth about $800,000.
