Nine works of art stolen in 2008 worth $10 million have been recovered after investigators from the LAPD and the FBI cracked the case wide open. An undercover operation caught Raul Espinoza, 45, trying to sell the paintings for $700,000 cash. A home owned by elderly art collectors in Encino was broken into in 2008, and works including Marc Chagall’s “Les Paysans” and Diego Rivera’s “Mexican Peasant” were stolen. There were a total of 12 missing paintings, and three are still missing, but police believe they are close to identifying the people involved in the original burglary.
