(AP) Dutch detectives and a prosecutor will travel to Romania to investigate the possible involvement of three men arrested in Bucharest in a multimillion-dollar art heist in the Netherlands.

Rotterdam Police spokesman Roland Ekkers says the Dutch team will travel to Bucharest in coming days to share with Romanian authorities details of their investigation into the theft from Rotterdam's Kunsthal gallery of seven extremely valuable paintings by artists including Picasso, Monet and Matisse.

Ekkers said Wednesday that Romanian police arrested the suspects in another art-related investigation in Romania, but there are indications they also have something to do with the art heist in Rotterdam.

Ekkers says reports that some of the paintings were recovered are wrong.

He says Romanian police checked, double checked and checked again and it is not true.
