Los Angeles Police said a multimillion dollar collection of Andy Warhol paintings has been stolen from a private home in West Los Angeles. The LAPD said Friday that ten 100-centimeter square paintings depicting famous athletes, including Chris Evert, Muhammad Ali and O.J. Simpson, were taken from the home of businessman Richard Weisman. A portrait of Weisman was also stolen. Police said a domestic employee entered Weisman's home on Sept. 3 and discovered the artwork missing from the dining room walls. She left the residence and went to a neighbor's home where she called police. A $1 million reward is being offered for information leading to the artwork's recovery.
