[ December 27th 2005 ]

A 74-year-old pensioner has been nicked by Italian police following a raid on a property in which almost 9000 stolen ancient artefacts were seized, Herald Sun reports today. Among the 8972 pieces seized were ancient terracotta vases, amphorae, masks, clay and bronze statues and parts of marble columns.

Italian police are cracking down on tomb raiding - a crime that has gone largely unchecked for centuries, with thieves regularly ransacking some of the country's most famous open-air archaeological sites.
