Police in Paris (the ones with the funny car sirens) have recovered three major PICASSSO works worth a combined $70,000,000 USD that were stolen in February from the apartment of Picasso's granddaughter, Diana Widmaier-Picasso, while she was asleep. None of the works were damaged and three people have been arrested at the time of the recovery. The two paintings were family heirlooms depicting Picasso's daughter Maya and his second wife, Jacqueline Roque. It is believed that the pieces were simply too famous to be moved on the black market after being stolen...
