Chicago police officers investigating gangs and guns turned up a $100,000 worth of stolen artwork. The eight paintings were apparently stolen from a storage facility in Lincolnwood. They were found in a cargo van on the city's South Side.

Police learned about the stolen art from a Cicero gang member they arrested last week for trying to sell guns on the city's South Side.

Police arrested three men in connection to the art burglary and for selling guns.
