We're learning new information about an encounter the prominent attorney said he had with a burglar inside his home early Monday morning.
In all, Buzbee said $21 million in belongings were taken, including:
- Three firearms, including a rifle/shotgun combo, a pistol and an automatic rifle
- Pablo Picasso's 'Femme Accoudee' painting, valued at $216,611
- Claude Monet's 'La Plaine de Gennevillers' painting, valued at $1,273,125
- A Fernand Leger painting, 'Paysage au coq rouge', valued at $1,284,015
- Pierre Bonnard's 'Jeune Femme au Chapeau noir,' valued at $832,125.00
- Jean Pierre Cassigneul's painting, 'Femme en Vert,' valued at $111,563

Buzbee said he grabbed his pistol when he found his front door open around 6 a.m. Monday, and told his son to call 911.
When Buzbee spotted the suspect, he said he pulled the gun on him, but the pistol misfired.
Houston mayoral hopeful Tony Buzbee victim of million-dollar heist
At one point, he watched the man as he tried to take a motorcycle from his garage.
A preliminary report by Houston police stated the loss of property is valued at several million dollars.
The aspiring mayoral candidate isn't new to drama surrounding his gated mansion. In 2017, a woman was charged with damaging $300,000 worth of art inside Buzbee's home after the two went on a date. That case was settled and never went to trial.
That same year, he also upset his River Oaks neighbors after parking a World War II tank along River Oaks Boulevard and refusing to move it for a while.
No arrests have been made in Monday's robbery.
