THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police have arrested a suspect in the theft last year of two valuable paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Frans Hals from separate museums. But a police spokeswoman says the paintings are still missing. She said a 58-year-old man was arrested at his home on Tuesday morning. His identity was not released, in line with Dutch privacy guidelines. The spokeswoman said the investigation is continuing. Van Gogh’s “The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in Spring 1884” was snatched from the Singer Laren museum east of Amsterdam in March 2020. The Hals work, “Two Laughing Boys,” was stolen five months later from a different Dutch museum.
