Since Tony Musulin and his security van disappeared in Lyon, France, last Thursday, he's become something of an Internet sensation. There are Facebook fans, blog posts declaring him the "best thief of the year", and the inevitable t-shirts and online videos.

Today, as BBC News reports, police found 9 million of the 11.6 million Euros that Musulin allegedly drove off with. The van had been found just hours after it, and Musulin, disappeared. The cash was discovered in a rented garage.

That still leaves 2.6 million Euros missing — or about $3.9 million at the current exchange rate.
