Police are searching for R500?000 worth of rare and historic East-Asian porcelain artifacts stolen from the Akademie vir Wetenskap and Kuns (Academy of Science and Art) in Pretoria, the institution said yesterday.

“They had already taken half of our Japanese and Chinese porcelain collection, and were still busy when the alarm must have interrupted them,” said Van der Elst.
