British prosecutors filed charges against 4 men over the theft of a toilet


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. British prosecutors filed charges against four men over the theft of a toilet - an 18-carat gold toilet valued at nearly $6 million. It went missing years ago from Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. It was a work of art to commentary on excess wealth and also, a functioning object. At long last, police think they have flushed out the four culprits, though they suspect the golden evidence was melted down. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
