Artwork Heist in Zurich

Three armed thieves stole four valuable paintings from a private collection house in Zurich on Sunday. The paintings stolen include works by Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne, and Degas. Their estimated worth is around $163 million and head of the police investigation, Peter R├╝egger, said it is the largest art heist in the history of Switzerland, and possibly all of Europe.

There have been other art robberies in the recent past (one only two weeks ago), but police do not think any are related.
