A Pablo Picasso lithograph has been stolen from a California mansion owned by a now-imprisoned former Ukranian prime minister after more than 100 teenagers threw a party there.
Pavlo Lazarenko's nine-bedroom property has become a headache for local officials trying to collect $2.1 million in back taxes and fines while fending off vandals, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
The 19,500-square-foot home in Marin County has been vandalized by partying teenagers who made off with the Picasso lithograph worth an estimated $30,000 on May 27.
The thieves also took silver candlesticks worth $5,000, laptop computers and leather coats, police said.
The teenagers entered the house and managed to get away before officers could arrest anyone, Novato police Sgt. Eric Riddell said.
A caretaker, who has not been identified, notified police officers after he found the teens drinking in the property.
Three teens returned a day later and, once again, escaped before authorities arrived. They had broken a glass coffee table and a fire extinguisher was inside the property.
