This is amazing.

Earlier this week police recovered nearly $20 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry that was stolen from the Paris boutique in December of 2008.

Investigators found the pricey baubles hidden in a drainpipe at the home of Daoudi Yahiaoui, who is believed to be the brainchild behind the $100 million robbery.

The loot found inside a plastic container and concrete mold included 19 rings valued between $1.6 million and $8.4 million and 3 earrings.

Sneaky, sneaky Mr. Robber.

After hearing the fantastic news, Harry Winston issued a statement saying they are "very grateful to the French police for the continued dedication to this matter, and will continue to cooperate with the authorities in their ongoing investigation."
