BUCHAREST, Romania —

Police say five Romanians are being questioned in the theft of (EURO)2 million ($2.68 million) worth of clothing from Italian designer Giorgio Armani's spring 2013 collection.

Police spokeswoman Raluca Seucan said Tuesday that Romanian authorities had searched the suspects' homes and barred them from leaving Romania for one month.

She says an Armani representative had recovered 1,378 items of clothing from police on Monday.

Prosecutors say thieves broke into a Verona, Italy, warehouse in mid-December and stole more than 1,400 items in the Armani collection, which they then sent to Romania in seven shipments.

Seucan says two Romanians were earlier arrested in Italy.
