(ABC 7) — Three people have been arrested in connection with the theft of a valuable Stradivarius violin.
It was stolen from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concertmaster last month. Police say the nearly 300-year-old violin was on loan to Frank Almond. Investigators say someone used a stun gun on him in a parking lot and took the instrument.
The violin has been appraised at $5 million. It was recovered in Milwaukee, reportedly on the city’s east side, after one of the suspects told investigators where to find it. Charges are pending.
