Jewel theft ar­rests

Herald Sun - - WORLD -

CROA­T­IAN po­lice have ar­rested four sus­pects in the brazen theft of pre­cious In­dian jewels from the famed Al Thani Col­lec­tion.

Four men, all Croa­t­ians aged 43-60, were ar­rested on Wed­nes­day af­ter a joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion with Ital­ian po­lice.

The force did not re­veal whether the jewels, stolen in Jan­uary from a Vene­tian palace, had been re­cov­ered and Ital­ian po­lice had no im­me­di­ate com­ment.

One of the ar­rested sus­pects is be­lieved to be linked to sev­eral ma­jor heists in Eu­rope and the no­to­ri­ous, multi­na­tional “Pink Pan­ther” gang of thieves.

He is also sought by Switzer­land over a 2011 jew­ellery heist, po­lice said.
