Sydney player's stolen violin found after theft on Vienna Underground

Thursday, 08 November 2012

Emma West, a violinist in the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, has been reunited with the violin that was stolen from her in Vienna, reports the Wiener Zeitung.

The violinist was travelling on an underground train in the city on 15 September 2012 when her instrument, worth an estimated €44,000, was snatched by a thief.

Police said the person who took it was part of a gang that had been stealing from tourists. When police arrested gang members and made a search of their flats last weekend, they recovered the violin.
