4 Man Charged In Theft Of 18-karat Gold Toilet

On Monday, the Crown Prosecution Service announced that four individuals have been charged for stealing a solid gold toilet worth around $1.25 million.

The toilet’s current estimated value, which is yet to be located, stands at a staggering 4.8 million pounds, equivalent to approximately $5.93 million, according to officials.

In 2019, the toilet that was recently installed at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, was taken. This toilet was previously displayed at the Guggenheim museum in New York City as part of an exhibit called “America” by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. Following the theft, Cattelan expressed his hope that the robbery was a “Robin Hood-inspired action,” as reported by Blenheim Palace.

According to the police, the gold toilet was in perfect working condition and had been linked to the plumbing system of Blenheim Palace before it was taken. However, when the toilet was removed, it caused considerable harm and flooding within the premises.

Police have charged James Sheen, aged 39, with burglary, transferring criminal property and conspiracy to commit the same offenses.

Three men are set to appear in court on November 28 in relation to criminal charges. Michael Jones, aged 38, has been charged with burglary, while Fred Doe, aged 35, and Bora Guccuk, aged 39, are accused of conspiring to transfer criminal property. The court hearing will take place at Oxford Magistrates’ Court.
