In the night of 27 May, two paintings were stolen from the museum Hofje van Mevrouw van Aerden in Leerdam. The works are Frans Hals’ Two laughing boys and a Wooded landscape by Jacob van Ruysdael.

The frame of the painting by Hals has been found back in a hedge a couple of streets from the museum. The painting itself and the work by Van Ruysdael are still traceless.
