In a recent development, seven individuals have been arrested, shedding new light on the theft that left art aficionados and toilet enthusiasts equally baffled.
Breaking: 7 individuals nabbed by police for allegedly heisting a $6M golden toilet dubbed 'America.'

But here's the twist - it had only been on display for two days when some daring folks stole it.
Now, four years later, the police have nabbed seven people they suspect might be connected to this toilet theft.
Since the toilet was all hooked up for the exhibit, the thieves had to literally cut it away from the pipes and other stuff, causing a bit of a flood at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Quite a royal flush!
