Picasso Painting Stolen in Paris was Found in Newark

Newark New Jersey

A once valued $2.5 million Pablo Picasso painting, stolen years ago in Paris was recovered at the Port of Newark.

An individual only identified as "Robert" shipped the art work from a Belgium address describing package as an "art craft" worth only $37.

According to reports, museum officials came to the United States to confirm authenticity of the painting.

The painting is expected to be on display in May, according Pompidou.

The location of the painting became a mystery since it was stolen from a Paris museum in 2001.

No arrests have been announced.
