A Manhattan man swiped two paintings worth more than a combined $80,000 – including a piece by legendary artist Andy Warhol – from a Hamptons resident, law enforcement sources said Tuesday.
Police said Dominique Parrot, 25, intended on selling the pricey pieces when he was caught on surveillance video on March 17 removing them from the back of a 2018 Porsche Macan belonging to the Hamptons resident.
The suspect allegedly stole Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can lithograph worth $65,000 and a Jules Perlmutter canvas painting valued at $15,000, sources said.
The Porsche was parked in Manhattan’s NoHo at the time, according to a criminal complaint.
Parrot was arrested Sunday at the NYPD’s 9th Precinct station house and charged with second-degree grand larceny, sources and court records show.
According to sources, Parrot had invoked his Fifth Amendment right upon his arrest.
“He was arrested for intent to sell,” an NYPD spokesman told The Post.
City jail records show that he’s currently being held at the Eric M. Taylor Center lockup on Rikers Island.
His bail has been set at $2,000 or $5,000 bond during his Manhattan Criminal Court arraignment, according to the records.
Parrot’s next court date is scheduled for Friday.
A police source said he has more than 20 prior arrests, including for burglaries and petit larcenies dating back to 2015.
