Stolen violins found in Montreal

Monday, 01 August 2011

Police have recovered eight out of nine violins stolen last month in Montreal. The violins, which have an estimated total value of C$210,000 (£135,000), were stolen by a man who was cat-sitting for a couple in the Plateau Mont Royal district.

The eight violins were traced to three pawn shops using a police computer program that logs details of every transaction in the roughly 170 pawn shops and secondhand shops in Montreal.
