THE whereabouts of a gold toilet stolen from Blenheim Palace remains a mystery – two years after its theft.

Police have made seven arrests since the burglary, but nobody has been charged.

The 18-carat loo was ripped out the floor at Blenheim Palace on September 14, 2019, having only been installed two days earlier as part of a new exhibition by Maurizio Cattelan.

Five burglars forced their way into the palace through the front gates and drove onto the courtyard in the early hours.

They used two stolen cars to pull off the heist, both with cloned ‘66’ plates on.

Three of them, dressed in dark clothes and wearing balaclavas, then got out of the cars – leaving two getaway drivers at the wheel.

The fully functioning toilet was then ripped out, leaving behind ‘significant damage and flooding’.

The loo was carried back through the palace, before being loaded into the boot of one of the cars.

Those arrested are:

  • A 37-year-old man from London arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods.
  • A 68-year-old man from Evesham arrested on suspicion of burglary.
  • A 36-year-old man from Cheltenham arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle.
  • A 38-year-old woman, a 37-year-old man and a 36-year-old man, all from Oxford, arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit a burglary other than a dwelling.
  • A 45-year-old man from Kent arrested on suspicion of burglary.
