KINGS POINT - A house painter is accused of stealing pricy paintings while working at a Kings Point estate.

Officials say Joselito Vega was working at the Schulhof Estate in Kings Point when three works of art disappeared in 2011.

Vega was hired again as part of a sting operation.

Investigators say Vega was then caught on camera stealing three more items including a Picasso etching.

Vega is now facing up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
