(CBS/AP) NOVATO, Calif. - A stolen Pablo Picasso lithograph was found on Sunday, propped up on the side of a fence in Marin County, reported CBS San Francisco.

Taken from the northern California mansion of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko, it has an estimated value of $30,000. It was reported stolen on May 28, after a group of more than 100 teenagers allegedly broke in and held a party in the imprisoned prime minister's spacious mansion.

To Police Sgt. Eric Riddell, it appeared the person who took the lithograph intended for it to be found, reported CBS San Francisco.

Lazarenko is  in federal prison, having been convicted of hiding money he had illegally pocketed during his time as prime minister.

His released is expected Nov. 1.
