Paintings stolen from French nationals’ home found by police in North Railway Station area sewage canals

Several paintings and icons allegedly stolen by a criminal ring led by a homeless man dubbed ‘Bruce Lee’ from the house inhabited by some French citizens were found in sewage canals in the North Railway Station area, according to people familiar with the investigation quoted by Mediafax. Bucharest Police scoured the canals as they had been tipped about the stolen objects being concealed in the area, with the homeless hiding there throwing glue at police in a bid to prevent them from accessing the place. Bucharest Police Spokesman Alexandru Niculae told journalists that the stolen art objects had been recovered. Asking journalists’ questions, the Police spokesman denied objects including national heritage items, saying they were but “private property”, and a damage estimate is yet to be made. The Police spokesman did not say whether ‘Bruce Lee’ or ‘The King of the Homeless” as he is also known, the suspected leader of a homeless people burglary ring, was among those held in custody.
