NYPD probes theft of $1M in artwork from publisher's home

AP  |  New York 

The co-founder of a New York-based publishing house says police are investigating the theft of USD 1 million in artwork during a party at his apartment.

Gregory told the New York Post and Daily that he had invited more than two dozen people to his Upper East Side home last Friday for a piano recital and art exhibit.

After the guests left, a member of his household staff discovered that several gold figurines dating to the 16th century and other valuable items were missing.

Police are looking for surveillance video in and around the Fifth Avenue building as the investigation continues.

The 81-year-old, Swiss-born Gregory is an art collector and founder of Vendome Press, a publisher of books on interior design, fine arts, French culture and jewelry.
