Toronto police are asking for the public's assistance in recovering 3 pieces of art that were stolen from 3 separate locations at the University of Toronto. The thefts are believed to be the work of the same individual. The paintings have been described as "valuable." One of the 3 paintings is by an unknown artist; the other stolen pieces are Morning at Peggy's Cove by William E deGarthe and Credit River by Yee Bon. The latter painting was housed in a room at uToronto's Victoria University that is usually locked but is also used for events. Curator Gillian Pearson noted that there were several groups through on the weekend of February 7th and 8th, when the piece was taken. Globe and Mail | Toronto Star
