Final suspect in Dutch art heist arrested in UK

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Prosecutors say U.K. police have arrested the final suspect in the theft of paintings by Matisse, Picasso and Monet from a Dutch museum.

In a statement Friday, prosecutors said Adrian Procop, one of two thieves who allegedly carried out the heist at Rotterdam's Kunsthal Museum in October 2012, was arrested Thursday in Britain.

Two other suspects, Radu Dogaru and Eugen Darie, were found guilty of theft and belonging to a criminal organization and were sentenced to six years and eight months in prison by a Bucharest court last month. Darie transported the stolen paintings to Romania.

The trial resumes Dec. 3 for Olga Dogaru, Radu's mother, and two others. Olga Dogaru told prosecutors she burned the seven paintings worth 18 million euros ($24.6 million) but later retracted that statement.
