Collectors Say Valuable Paintings Stolen in California
PEBBLE BEACH, CA (AP).- Authorities say artwork by Jackson Pollock, Matisse, Rembrandt and others has been reported stolen from a California rental home in the wealthy enclave of Pebble Beach.

Authorities say the two renters believe the 13 pieces were taken Friday by professional art thieves. The renters are offering $1 million for their return.

Art owner Angelo Benjamin Amadio says the pieces also include work by Miro, Renoir and Van Gogh. He estimates the missing Pollock alone could be worth about $40 million.

Amadio says the artwork was uninsured because insurance would have cost upward of $30 million.

He and housemate, Dr. Ralph Kennaugh, have about 300 pieces of art in their collection.

The Monterey County Sheriff's Office and private detectives are investigating.
