Rembrandt stolen in 'well planned heist'
A Rembrandt drawing valued at more than $250,000 (£152,000) was stolen from a hotel during what police called a well planned heist.
The pen and ink drawing called "The Judgment" was on display as part of an exhibition in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Los Angeles.
Police believe the thief had accomplices and had worked out a detailed strategy for stealing the 11in by 6in work.
The hotel was hosting a private exhibition which was offering artworks for sale to possible buyers.
A curator was distracted by another person during which time the thief snatched the drawing from the wall and escaped undetected....
