    When $350,000 worth of Andy Warhol prints were stolen from Los Angeles business Moviola and replaced with fakes, sometime in the last three years, nobody noticed. It was only in July when one was sent to be reframed that it was noticed the print lacked its original signature and number.

    Now an attorney for Brian Calvero, who was named in court documents in the theft case, has handed back two prints - Siberian Tiger and Bighorn Ram - to the original owners. Calvero sold another print in 2011 but denies any wrongdoing. He's the owner of an apparel company called Crooks and Castles. :)
