"Million Dollar" D-Bag's Alleged Jade Heist

1/26/2009 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Josh FlaggJosh Flagg -- the death profiteer from "Million Dollar Listing" -- could get away with allegedly ... you guessed it ... profiting off another dead person.

The estate of Marcia Israel -- who created Judy's clothing stores -- is suing Flagg for allegedly obtaining a bunch of extremely expensive paintings and Jade sculptures that were supposed to be reserved for the Marcia Israel Foundation.

Flagg allegedly got hold of the goods after they mysteriously disappeared from Israel's L.A. mansion -- when Israel's husband temporarily was staying there in 2004 after her death, according to the docs.

A private investigator claims to have snapped photos of the missing goods through the window of Flagg's home.

Here's the kicker: Flagg's lawyers claim Israel's estate has no case against him now because the statute of limitations has run out.

Flagg is being sued for damages for the alleged "wrongful taking of personal property."

I know everyone that posts on here, wishes they could steal valuable
jade objects and have the statute of limitations run out so they could not
be prosecuted.

Asked L.A. Times to keep up with the investigation of Josh Flagg during "Million dollar Listing," show in which the missing art was suspicious aginst Mr. Flagg, and as usual, no response.

Why did the L.A. Police do nothing, with evidence suggesting Josh took the art from one of the houses is was selling?
The L.A. Police can only do dumb crimes, and does not know how how to prosicute white coller crime, or art thiefs.

I hate to admit it but I've seen the show. He's such a pompous little tool and that doesn't surprise me from the way he talked.

The Josh Flagg is the Bernie Madoff of real estate. Did he return the art work he stole from the last house he sold?
