A stolen Italian violin worth around £200,000 has been recovered by Hong Kong police. The Gaetano II Guadagnini of 1835-40 belongs to the Chi-Mei Cultural Foundation in Taiwan. A Taiwanese-American violinist had played the violin in a concert at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre but fell asleep on the Star Ferry on the way back to his hotel, and awoke to find the instrument missing. Police used CCTV footage to identify the suspected thief, and later arrested a man at his home, where the violin was found.
