Milwaukee cops: We got the perps, now where’s the Strad?

Here’s the full press conference on concertmaster Frank Almond’s stolen Stradivarius, ten minutes long, not much information. The suspects are two men, aged 42 and 36, and a woman, 32. One is said to have previous form in art theft.

‘We emphasize at this time that although we made arrests we have not yet recovered the violin,’ said Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn.

The  missing Strad has been given an insurance valuation of $5 million.

    There are now published reports that the stolen Strad has been recovered (http://my.chicagotribune.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-79181150/). Formal press conference at noon (CST), where there should be further details about its identification and condition.
