WILLEMSTAD, Curacao (AP) — Police in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao have arrested three suspects in connection with the recent heist of 70 gold bars worth an estimated $11.5 million.
Police spokesman Reginald Huggins said Friday that authorities would soon release more details.
One of the men arrested is the owner of a local jewelry store, while the other two suspects were arrested at the jeweler's house.
The arrests come nearly a month after gunmen pretending to be police stole 216 kilograms (476 pounds) of gold bars from a fishing boat in Curacao.
Authorities have not said where the gold was being delivered, but one of the ship's crew members said they were delivering the gold to an unidentified company in Curacao.
