Thief Owns Up
Two Days ago I reported that French police had recovered Rembrandt's The Child and the Soap Bubble, stolen 15 years ago. The two men trying to sell the painting were arrested. In a surprising development on Wednesday night, a man who claims he actually stole the picture handed himself into the police on the advice of his lawyer. He was released after making a statement. The French Central Office for the Fight against Traffic in Cultural Goods (OCBC) has launched an investigation into the theft (CLICK).
