Detectives recovered a Leonardo da Vinci painting stolen from a Scottish castle in a daring daylight raid four years ago, police said. Officers raided an address in Glasgow on Thursday and seized "Madonna with the Yarnwinder," Scotland's Dumfries and Galloway police said. Three men from England and a man from Scotland were arrested. The painting appeared on the FBI's 10 most-wanted list of stolen art works and on the Art Loss Register's list of stolen masterpieces, where it was valued at US$65 million (€49 million). Police said art experts had confirmed the recovered painting was the Da Vinci masterpiece, stolen from Drumlanrig Castle in southern Scotland in August 2003.
