NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Two pieces of stolen artwork have been returned to a Brooklyn gallery.

In a heist that was caught on video in March, thieves were seen running down a Williamsburg Street with paintings taken from a nearby gallery.

One piece was quickly recovered, but two others remained missing.

Those two pieces are now back in the gallery. The owner told CBS 2 that the art was returned by a suspect as part of a plea deal.
