A Romanian Smuggler of Dead Sea Scrolls?

A Romanian Smuggler of Dead Sea Scrolls? June 3, 2012

The Romanian news outlet Adevărul is reporting that a Romanian citizen has been apprehended attempting to cross the border between Switzerland and Italy with a stash of Dead Sea Scrolls of great value. Which scrolls they are, whether they are authentic, and where they were obtained remain to be determined. Swiss police are said to be investigating. I am puzzled that no non-Romanian outlets appear to be reporting the incident, other than a local news source in Ticino where the incident occurred.
