Fake Bruegel painting baits thieves
#1
Italy https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47568323 Italy 

Police in Italy are unconcerned about the daring theft of a Flemish master's painting - because they had replaced it with a fake a month ago.

The painting by Pieter Brueghel the Younger, worth millions, apparently vanished from a church on Wednesday.

Thieves used a hammer to smash open its display case and made off in a car.

Hours later, Italian police revealed they had heard rumours of the planned heist - and installed cameras to catch the thieves in the act.

The painting of the crucifixion had also been replaced with a copy, and the original kept safe and sound, they said.



Good work by the police here!

I'm glad to see nothing of value was lost - and, I hope this gives them the information they need to track down the criminals :D .
