Dr. No Strikes Again

From the New York Times: "Some 30 paintings by such masters as Monet, Cézanne and Corot and a Rodin sculpture were stolen from the home of an antiques dealer near Paris, police officials said. Five masked gunmen broke into the home in Le Pecq, west of Paris, in the early hours, subdued the dealer and fled with the art, the officials said. A judicial source said that if the artworks’ authenticity was confirmed, their value would be priceless." (I don't see why the value would be "priceless," but I suppose I get the point.)
