WILLIAMSBURG - Three stolen pieces of art have been returned to a Williamsburg art gallery.

Gallery owner Sean Leonard says he thought the pieces were as good as gone when they were stolen last month. However, the suspect accused of stealing the works agreed to return them for a plea deal.

Leonard says he had been able to track down one of the stolen works, but the other two eluded him until now. He says the value of those two paintings equals about $14,000.
