Stolen Rug Still Hidden in Iran
Sep 27, 2004, 12:57
The latest police probe into an alleged theft of a precious rug from Iran's Carpet Museum strongly indicates it is still kept inside the country, said a police commander who added law enforcement officers will make sure it is returned safe and sound.

The rug was stolen last Monday during the last working shift but police believes since there were more precious rugs and carpets in the museum, any elaborate planning for the heist has been ruled out, said Rahmatulla Rauf, commander of the Cultural Heritage Corps.

"Some of the carpets were transferred to the auditorium of the museum which lacked proper supervision devices and it is reckoned some people have stolen it during the process," he added.

The picture of the rug was sent for the Interpol to track its possible routes to foreign sales houses. "
