A Sylmar auto mechanic has become the fourth suspect arrested in the theft of $9 million in paintings from a storage locker in Northridge, police said Wednesday. According to Detective Barbara Bella, 37-year-old Matthew Gibbs was arrested about 8 a.m. Tuesday at his Hubbard Street home by Los Angeles police detectives. "It took us a little while to get him so maybe he thought we had forgotten about him," Bella said.

Peter MacKenzie could do wonders with a hammer and Alan R. McArthur could make sense of fuse box circuitry, but it seems that neither knew the difference between a Baldini and a Modigliani--much less how to fence them. It was this naivete, authorities said, that more than anything else landed them in jail this week as suspects in the theft of $9 million in master artworks from a Northridge storage facility.

The missing paintings and drawings, which were not insured, were stored in a nondescript 10-by-12-foot room in a Public Storage warehouse in the 9300 block of Shirley Avenue, across from the Northridge Fashion Center, police said.

Peter MacKenzie could do wonders with a hammer and Alan R. McArthur could make sense of the circuitry in a fuse box, but when it came to art, it seems that neither could bring the same expertise to determining a Baldini from a Modigliani. It was that naivete that, more than anything else, landed them in jail this week as suspects in a $9-million art theft from a Northridge storage locker, authorities said.

It was the year the San Fernando Valley lost whatever remained of its innocence and flexed its political muscles. The muscle ensured the election of a Republican mayor to succeed a liberal Democrat who many Valley dwellers felt had ignored them during his 20-year rule downtown. The tatters of its sleepy past as a suburban retreat were buried by the lurid trial in Van Nuys of two wealthy young men who admit to shredding their parents with shotguns.
