Priceless Jewels Stolen In Museum Heist

Police have released the first images of items stolen from Dresden Castle during Monday's dramatic heist in Germany.

The dramatic caper took place at dawn after a fire broke out at an electrical distribution point nearby.

According to CNN, approximately 100 artifacts are believed to have been taken in the raid.

The jewel thieves reportedly smashed a glass display at the castle's Green Vault before fleeing.

Among the items lost are a sword, a string of pearls and a collection of priceless 18th-century jewels.

Almost all of the artifacts were made during the rule of Frederick Augustus III, the last Elector of Saxony.

Most were created by the court jewelers Jean Jacques Pallard and Christian August Globig.
