ZAGREB, Croatia | Croatia arrests 4 suspected thieves in Venice jewel heist
ZAGREB, Croatia — 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 Thursday the men are all Croatians ranging in age from 43 to 60. They were arrested Wednesday after a months-long investigation in cooperation with Italian police.
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.
