August 09, 2007|From the Associated Press

French investigators have recovered two Picasso paintings and a drawing that were stolen from the home of the artist's granddaughter in February, a police official said.

Paris police took three people into custody. Two suspects were carrying the rolled-up canvases when police closed in Tuesday as they were expected to try to sell the masterpieces, the official said.

The two paintings -- one of Pablo Picasso's daughter Maya, the other of his second wife Jacqueline -- are worth nearly $66 million. Burglars had stolen them and the drawing from the luxurious Left Bank apartment of Diana Widmaier-Picasso, Maya Picasso's daughter.
