Russell Crowe's 'Gladiator' armor sells for $96K at auction

  Russell Crowe's 'Gladiator' armor sells for $96K at auction The torso armor Russell Crowe wore in his Oscar-winning role in "Gladiator" has eclipsed expectations at a Sydney auction, selling for 125,000 Australian dollars ($96,000). Sotheby's Australia had estimated the stunt cuirass worn in the 2000 blockbuster would fetch between AU$20,000 and AU$30,000. But much of the movie memorabilia auctioned by the Australia-based New Zealander as part of his divorce settlement exceeded expectations.

The Blast reported on April 16 that $820,000 in jewellery and cash was taken.

According to the report, Usher's estranged wife, Grace Miguel, was first alerted to the break-in by a housekeeper on March 29.

The housekeeper told Grace that she felt something was off when she got to the home and found a "footprint on the second floor, a handprint on the pillow in the lower floor, and the curtains to the lower floor window were open." She then immediately decided to check the security footage, but when she saw the recording box, it was missing and the connecting wires were cut.

Origin of Mysterious 2,700-Year-Old Gold Treasure Revealed

  Origin of Mysterious 2,700-Year-Old Gold Treasure Revealed New analysis unveils the origin of the storied Carambolo Treasure, and despite previous claims, it has nothing to do with Atlantis.When the 2,700-year-old treasure was first found, it instantly sparked speculation and debate about Tartessos, a civilization that thrived in southern Spain between the ninth and sixth centuries B.C. Ancient sources described the Tartessians as a wealthy, advanced culture, ruled by a king. That wealth, and the fact that the Tartessians seemingly 'disappear' from history about 2,500 years ago, has led to theories equating Tartessos with the mythical site of Atlantis.

When Grace arrived, she noticed that several expensive pieces of jewellery were lifted and realized that $20,000 in cash was missing from a nightstand, The Blast said.

Grace told police that she thinks the crooks first heisted the jewellery and cash and returned later to steal the security footage.

It didn't appear that the thieves used force to get into the house, which is currently on the market. In fact, Usher's ex told police she thinks the crooks unlocked a window during a recent open house.

The realtor has been asked to give police a list of people who were in the home, the report states.

In addition to the cash, missing items include a rose gold Jesus necklace worth $200,00 and six watches, one of which is valued at $220,000.
