British police say they have recovered a £1.2 million ($1.84 million) antique violin that was stolen from an acclaimed musician in 2010 when she stopped for a snack in London.
South Korean violinist Min-Jin Kym was eating inside a sandwich shop in November 2010 when she noticed that her black violin case containing the 300-year-old Stradivarius was missing.
The violin, made in 1696, is one of only around 400 in the world. It was stolen along with two bows, valued at more than £67,000.
British Transport Police said Tuesday that officers recovered the instrument intact with minor damage in its case along with the bows at a property in central England last week.
Two people have been jailed over the theft.
