Yesterday afternoon, a New York city school teacher got caught red-handed while trying to remove a precious piece of artwork from a southbound 6 train at 96th Street. The Post reports that 34-year-old educator James Tavaras pried the

one-of-a-kind

art out of a frame resulting in charges that include possession of stolen property, petit larceny, and possession of burglary tools (the alleged burglary tool was a...screwdriver).

According to the Daily News, Tavaras joined the Department of Education last year and is a special education teacher in the Bronx.

Something else we learned: The Transit Museum store offers cute posters like these, some of which have been used in train cars, legally for $24.95!
