The Mounties held a show-and-tell today of antiques, rare books, historical letters and paintings they allege were brazenly stolen from across Atlantic Canada and put on display in a Halifax-area home. Officers seized more than a-thousand items last Friday from the home in Fall River, believed to be from universities, libraries, museums, antique dealers and private collections. Sergeant Colin MacLean says the items are valuable for different reasons.
