The NY Post is reporting;
A real-estate agent sold an Upper West Side town house to the owner of an art gallery — then allegedly looted the home of more than $500,000 in high-end goods when the victim and her family were away in the Hamptons, The Post has learned.David Kim, 42, last employed by the Corcoran Group, was involved in the sale of the $7.6 million West 81st Street property to Tina Kim — who runs the Tina Kim Gallery in Chelsea — and her husband, Jae Chung, in December 2012, police sources said. The sale was not handled by Corcoran.Tina Kim's family, which employs a maid, nanny and personal driver, never changed the locks on the doors, allowing the agent allegedly to slip inside the home and steal their pricey possessions, including rare statues and portraits. He allegedly stored the treasure trove in his apartment on the same block. David Kim also used one of the victim's American Express cards on seven occasions to make $50,000 in purchases at various shops, court records claim. Police recovered the stolen property from David Kim's residence. Kim's private attorney, Lance Fletcher, said, "There's been no evidence linking him to the apartment where the burglary occurred except for the alleged proceeds from the burglary." A Corcoran spokesman said David Kim has not sold any properties during his brief employment with the real-estate agency. firstname.lastname@example.org
