The Washington Post has reported that Romanian police have three Romanian suspects in custody accused of involvement in the $100 million art heist in Rotterdam last October.  Two individuals were caught on the security camera exiting out the back door of the exhibition Avante-Gardes at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, Holland early in the morning making off with seven artworks by prominent artists such as Picasso, Gauguin, and Monet that were part of the Triton collection which was celebrating its twentieth anniversary.

Unfortunately, as of this report the paintings remain unrecovered.  The investigation remains ongoing and in a brief statement Rotterdam Police spokeswoman Yvette van den Heerik commented, “Three people have been arrested, but unfortunately we have not got back the paintings”.
