(AP) British police say they have recovered a 1.2 million pound ($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 pounds.


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.
