55 objects seized in El Wadi El Gedid, but are they genuine?

Luxor Times

With photo. A committee is being sent to inspect the seized items and ensure that they are genuine.

55 antiquity objects of various sizes including 2 sarcophagi dated back to different eras were seized by a police force on a raid on a known criminal’s residence in El Wadi El Gadid. The raid on Mohamed A.A. – 37 years old, residence resulted finding the mentioned antiquities plus police uniforms which led to believe they were stolen during the recent turmoil.

Maybe it's just me, but in that photograph at least, that stuff looks a lot like the same things that are in front of every stall in the souks at Deir el-Bahri and the Valley of the Kings. I could be wrong, but I do wonder.
