Historical Society of Pennsylvania reviewing collection after visit from accused thieves

    Barry Landau and Jason Savedoff visited the Historical Society of Pennsylvania 17 times before staffers started getting suspicious.

    So during its regular Monday closure, the staff spent the day going through the same items Landau and Savedoff went through, as the two are now accused of stealing items from the Maryland Historical Society.

    KYW reports the two men are being held without bail for the thefts, and the HSP staffers will go through their collections to ensure everything is in place.
