A joint investigation by the FBI and the Los Angeles Police Department led to the recovery of nine paintings totaling million of dollars that had been stolen six years ago from the home of an elderly couple, Reuters reports.

The FBI arrested the 45-year-old suspect, Paul Espinoza, after an undercover agent posed as an art buyer interested in the stolen pieces, some of which were painted by Marc Chagall and Diego Rivera.

Espinoza was arrested and pleaded not guilty to possession of stolen property in court on Oct. 27.
