COPY-Mystery surrounds theft of Stradivarius violin
By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police have not recovered a valuable violin stolen last month, despite the arrests of three people in connection with the theft.
Police Chief Ed Flynn said Wednesday the search continues for the so-called Lipinski Stradivarius. The $5 million instrument was stolen from a Milwaukee virtuoso as he walked to his car following a Jan. 27 performance.
Prosecutors say they don't expect any decisions about charges to be made before Thursday.
Police say the robber appeared to be targeting the violin specifically. They say a thief used a stun gun on violinist Frank Almond, grabbed the violin and jumped into a waiting vehicle.
