Van Gogh Suspects Nabbed: Four suspects, including a museum guard, have been arrested in the bungled theft of 20 Vincent van Gogh paintings worth hundreds of millions of dollars, police in Amsterdam announced Thursday. The paintings were recovered in an abandoned car about half an hour after the April 14 robbery, which would have been among the greatest art heists in history. Police said the two suspects who physically stole the paintings from the Vincent van Gogh National Museum panicked and abandoned their loot because a car due to rendezvous with them got a flat tire and did not appear.
