The former electrician for Pablo Picasso could face up to five years in prison.  Pierre Le Guennec and his wife were found guilty of stealing 271 works of art and keeping them in their garage.  The theft, valued between 68 and 90 million, came to light when the Le Guennecs brought the works of art to Paris where they hoped to get Picassos son Claudes stamp of approval in an effort to legitimize the booty.  The criminal duo claimed that Picassos wife gave the handyman the works shortly before Pablos death in 1973.  Instead, they opened up a can of worms that will most likely end in imprisonment.  The judge will sentence them on March 20th

Moral of the story, if you're going to steal 90 million in art, don't show it to the artists family:)
