Jade Theft Update

A fifth man has been charged in connection with the theft of 18 Chinese artifacts, mostly jade, from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge last April. Thomas Kiely of Tower Hamlets has been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and is due to appear before Cambridge Magistrates' Court (CLICK). Four men have already been convicted for their part in the burglary, but the 18 artifacts worth millions of pounds still haven't been recovered. The police were far too slow in releasing images of the stolen items. Shown are three of them. CLICK to view all 18 stolen treasures.
