Warwick also accused Landau of trying to bribe an unnamed individual, later identified in court as Savedoff, by promising to pay his attorney fees and helping him mount a "psychiatric defense."
He has a never-ending "capacity to engage in fraud and deceit," Warwick said in court.
Investigators say that Landau stole from his friends, as well, pretending to admire some precious item, then pointing out a flaw to the owner with either its presentation or preservation. Landau would then promise to correct the error, but actually stole the original and replaced it with a sophisticated copy, Warwick said.
A particular individual who frames such items, along with a reproduction company will be subpoenaed in connection with the case, Warwick said.
The FBI also found in Landau's apartment a jacket and two overcoats with extra-deep pockets that could be used to hide stolen materials, Warwick said, along with identification belonging to someone named Christopher McGovern.
Warwick alleges that Landau and Savedoff trolled the locker room of a Manhattan gym in search of IDs to steal.
