The case, State v. Gardner, chronicles a robbery at the Walters Art Museum in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Two people disguised as police officers were allowed into the museum, and once they were permitted to enter, they tied up the guards and stole three precious pieces of art. A young former museum employee, Izzy Gardner, is suspected of taking part in the robbery. She is charged with theft along with the assault of the two museum guards. Was Gardner really one of the culprits? Will the missing art be recovered? The FHS team will be challenged to make a compelling argument for both the prosecution and defense.
