Four held over theft of Indian jewels
Croatian police have arrested four suspects in the theft last January of Indian jewels from the famed Al Thani Collection that were on display in a Venetian palace.
The men, all Croatians, were arrested on Wednesday after a monthslong joint investigation with Italian police, Croatian police said in a statement.
The force did not reveal whether the jewels had been recovered, and Italian police had no immediate comment.
The statement said that one of the suspects is believed linked to several major heists in Europe and the so-called Pink Panther gang of thieves.
He is also sought by Switzerland over a 2011 jewellery heist, police said.
The thieves made off with a brooch and a pair of earrings worth an estimated three million dollars.
