Police recover lost Lada paintings

The Czech police recovered paintings stolen from a museum devoted to one of the country's most famous artists, Josef Lada, and broke up a theft ring. Eight paintings were stolen from the Lada museum in the late artist's hometown of Hrusice, near Prague, in October but only five of them have been recovered. The paintings were found in Prague with a large number of antiques and other valuables stolen from nearly 60 homes, cottages and shops across the country since September.
