In December 2009, burglars stole 32 works of art worth a total of €500,000 ($667,000) from a private home in La Cadiere d’Azur, a medieval village in southern France.
In June, police recovered 27 of the works in the southern town of La Ciotat. A drawing by Pablo Picasso was among them. Many other works were by 20th Century artists from Provence.
Four other suspects have already been jailed.
