A Lantana homeowner says his ex-girlfriend and another man stole $10 million in artwork, relics and statues from his house.
The owner of the house, Nicholas Zoullas, filed a police report with Lantana police after the theft.
The man's ex-girlfriend, Stacy Cliett, and the woman's companion, Todd Stephens, claimed the art was moved from the home to preserve it because of a mold problem.
However, when Zoullas' attorney asked where they moved it, they refused to provide details, according to a police report.
Using a private investigator, Zoullas was able to locate a home on 23rd Avenue South in Lake Worth where some of the art was being stored.
Police said surveillance later spotted Stephens and Cliett loading property into a Lexus and leaving the Lake Worth house.
Officers confronted Cliett who told police she was moving some of the artwork to a warehouse.
After interviewing Cliett, she told officers that she loaded a U-Haul truck and parked it in the 1100 block of South Lake Drive in Lantana.
Officer then executed a search warrant at the warehouse and found a large amount of the artwork, sculptures and relics. In addition, police found crates with shipping labels with Zoullas' name.
Police were able to confirm that a large amount of the art belonged to Zoullas.
Police arrested Cliett and Stephens in the case, who face charges of grand theft.
Stephens is currently out of jail on a federal bond pending sentencing for conspiracy to commit money laundering, said Lantana police.
