Kunsthal Heist Update

Six days ago I posted news of a "break-in" at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and the theft of seven paintings of dubious artistic merit but considerable financial value (CLICK). The alarm system at the Kunsthal is supposed to be "state of the art". Dutch police have now released a surveillance video of the burglary. It shows two hoodies entering through an unlocked fire escape door, making two quick dashes to steal the paintings and closing the door behind them, all in less than two minutes. They knew the fire escape would be open for them and that the police would soon arrive. Clearly an inside job.
