Italian Police Find 2 Stolen Renoir and Rubens Paintings

Police in Northern Italy have recovered 2 paintings stolen in Y 2017, a Renoir and a Rubens.

Carabinieri art-squad police displayed the paintings for reporters Friday in Monza, a city in the northern Lombardy regional of Italy.

Investigators allege the works were stolen in Monza from a pair of art dealers by suspects posing as buyers.

The investigators say the thieves had signed a phony contract pledging to pay $30-M for the paintings. According to investigators, when the dealers were distracted, the thieves snatched the paintings and drove off.

Police said the paintings were found in a warehouse in Turin, Italy. Investigators said there are 8 suspects, including 4 Italians and a Croat who were arrested last month in the case.
