Robbery charges to be filed against violin thief

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Robbery charges are expected to be filed today against one of three people arrested in the theft of a 300-year-old Stradivarius violin in Milwaukee.  

District Attorney John Chisholm plans to file a felony complaint after he gets more information from the suspect.  He did not say whether the other two people would be charged.  

Two men and a woman remained in police custody as of late yesterday.  The Stradivarius was stolen January 27th during a robbery in the Wisconsin Lutheran College parking lot, where concert-master Frank Almond had just performed a concert with it.  Police said they recovered the instrument on Wednesday night, after officers were led to the attic of a house where it was found in a suitcase. Officials of the Milwaukee Symphony said the violin appeared to be in good condition.  

Police said the main suspect was 41-year-old Salah Jones of Milwaukee.  He had been linked to the theft of a $25,000 statue in 1995.
