A Dutchman known to police as "The Monkey" has been arrested in southern Spain for his suspected involvement in the theft of two Van Gogh paintings.
Van Gogh's View of the Sea at Scheveningen was stolen
Octave Durham - who earned his nickname for his ability to elude police - was arrested on Friday.
The 31-year-old is wanted in connection with a robbery from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in December 2002.
The stolen paintings were Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen and View of the Sea at Scheveningen.
Mr Durham was arrested in Puerto Banus, a luxury suburb of Marbella, on an international warrant.
Investigators were baffled by the theft at the time because guards patrolled the premises at night and there was tight security inside, including infra-red systems and cameras.
The thieves got in through the roof and police found a rope and a 4.5-metre (15-foot) ladder leaning against the rear of the building.
During Mr Durham's arrest, police confiscated several mobile phones and a police radio scanner.
He will be questioned at Madrid's National Court while extradition proceedings begin.
