Fourth man arrested in Waalre town hall arson probe

A fourth person has been arrested in connection with the attack on the town hall in Waalre which was destroyed by fire when two cars drove into the building last July.

The 38-year-old man is also alleged to have been involved in an armed robbery of the Gassan Diamonds stand at an exhibition centre in Den Bosch last month. The investigation into that crime put police on the trail of potential Waalre arsonists.
