    Burglars have stolen a fully-functioning 18-carat gold toilet from Britain's Blenheim Palace, where it had been installed as an art exhibit

    Burglars have stolen a fully-functioning 18-carat gold toilet from Britain's Blenheim Palace, where it had been installed as an art exhibit


    Thieves with at least two vehicles broke into the palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, and removed the toilet early Saturday morning

    Detective Inspector Jess Milne says due to the toilet being plumbed in to the building, the theft has caused significant damage and flooding.

    Police have arrested a 66-year-old man in connection with the theft, but have not yet recovered the artwork.
