It was reportedly England’s largest burglary.

Police in London have arrested a 57-year-old man in connection with a 2015 burglary in which $20 million of jewelry and cash were taken.

A half-dozen men have already been handed sentences of between six and seven years each in connection with the crime, described as “the largest burglary in English history,” The New York Times reports. They were in their 60s and 70s.

The valuables were stolen from Hatton Garden Safe Deposit in the city’s jewelry district, according to the newspaper.

In a press release, Metropolitan Police said the newly arrested man was being held on “suspicion of non-residential burglary.” He was not identified.

He was arrested after a search warrant was carried out at an address in Islington. A number of items were seized from the address, according to the release.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
