The theft of millions of dollars in artwork from a Stockbridge man 28 years ago has finally been solved. Seven paintings were stolen, including a Cezanne now worth almost $30 million.

Retired lawyer Robert Mardirosian says he had the paintings in his possession since the man who stole them sought his legal advice in 1978.
