Night Watchman at Greek Museum Arrested; Ancient Loot Found

ATHENS (AP) — Police say they have arrested a night watchman at an archaeological museum on the Greek island of Santorini who had been stealing antiquities from the storage room.

Police say they found in the night watchman’s house 15 clay pots dating from the 17th century BC, two stone and one clay figurines and a “quartz crystal object” dating from at least the 8th century BC.

The arrest took place Saturday but was announced Sunday.

Police said the artifacts have been returned to the museum.
