Kate Moss Street Art Theft!!!

Kate Moss Street Art Theft!!!

London, England (CNN) -- Investigators in London have arrested

a man in the reported theft of artworks from the home of

supermodel Kate Moss, police said Friday. Newspapers in

Britain reported Friday that three works of art, including a portrait

worth the equivalent of $115,000 (£80,000) were stolen

Thursday from her London house while she was asleep upstairs.

Moss, whose slight frame was at the forefront of the waif look

in the mid-1990s, is now nearly as well known for her celebrity

lifestyle as her modeling career.

Some outlets reported that the burglar stole a piece by elusive

British street artist Banksy. He is famous for painting stenciled

graffiti in public places, often overnight, before anyone

realizes he's been there. His public art has appeared across

London and Britain and his gallery paintings can reach into the

six figures. This week, London police appealed for more

information about the theft this month of two Banksy prints

worth more than the equivalent of $23,000 (£16,000) from an

art gallery in central London's Soho neighborhood. The prints,

both limited-edition and signed by the artist, were stolen after

thieves broke through the gallery's front window, police said.

When asked about the Moss reports, a spokesman for

London's Metropolitan Police would only say that police were

investigating a residential burglary Thursday in central London.

"A 24-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary

and is in custody at a north London police station," a police

spokesman said. British police customarily do not release

detailed information about investigations if someone has been

arrested or charged. A spokeswoman from Storm Models,

which represents Moss, declined to comment.
