Croa­t­ian po­lice say they have ar­rested four sus­pects in the brazen theft last Jan­uary of pre­cious In­dian jewels from the famed Al Thani Col­lec­tion that were on dis­play in a Vene­tian palace. Po­lice said the men are all Croa­t­ians rang­ing in age from 43 to 60. The thieves made off with a brooch and a pair of ear­rings by mix­ing in with the crowd on the fi­nal day of the ex­hi­bi­tion at Venice’s Doge’s Palace. Croa­t­ian po­lice say the value of the stolen jewels is es­ti­mated at some $3 mil­lion.
