Fourteen years ago, a priceless Pablo Picasso painting was stolen from a Paris museum. After so many years, experts believed they would never see it again, but then something amazing happened.

A Belgian man shipped a box to Newark containing what he claimed was an “arts and crafts” toy that he valued at $37. Suspicious, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol decided to investigate the box, and they were stunned by what they found inside.

Investigators found the missing Picasso painting entitled “La Coiffeuse” which means “The Hairdresser.” Valued at millions of dollars, it has now been returned to the French government, who are it’s rightful owner.
