A valuable violin stolen from a house in Aboude last week has turned up in The Hague, where two men tried to sell it to a violin maker.

The Landolfi violin was stolen with two others. It was made in 1731 and is valued at around €150,000.

The violin maker was alerted to the theft by an email and became suspicious about the violin he was offered for sale. He warned the police who were able to arrest the two men, aged 22 and 25. The two other violins have not yet been recovered.
