Netted with a fishing rod

Peter Wilson Fine art Auctioneers of Nantwich, Cheshire UK

It is believed that thieves used fishing rods to catch six paintings and reel them in via the barred windows of an auctioneer's viewing gallery. The thieves got round the auctioneer's sophisticated alarm system by smashing windows before "fishing" the paintings from the viewing gallery.

The paintings are supposed to have been stolen to order. The haul includes three signed paintings by Arthur Delaney valued between £3500 and £4500 each.
