Spanish police arrest 9 on suspicion of selling fake art

In this photo released by the Spanish Interior Ministry on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015, different pieces of alleged fake art are seen inside a studio in Valencia, Spain. Spanish Police have broken up a network that allegedly created and sold fake works of art purporting to be by artists of international standing including Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Joan Miro. Officers have arrested nine suspects in the eastern region of Valencia, including the alleged counterfeiters and intermediaries involved in selling the fakes. Investigators searched seven addresses and seized 271 works, including canvasses, sculptures and documents to be used to falsify the art's provenance. (AP Photo/Spanish Interior Ministry, HO)
