Fitzwilliam raid – new charge

09 January 2013Written by ATG Reporter

A fifth person has been charged in connection to the theft of 18 Chinese artefacts from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

The 21-year-old man from London has been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary.

Three men were jailed in September for their part in the theft and a 15-year-old boy sentenced to a four-month detention and training order.

The items taken, mostly Ming and Qing dynasty jades thought to be worth from £100,000 to £3m each, have still not been traced after the break-in on April 13.
