Stolen Stradivarius Arrests

From Colleen Henry, WISN 12 News:
WISN 12 News has learned three people have been arrested in connection with the theft of a 300-year-old violin.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office confirmed to WISN 12 News reporter Colleen Henry that allegations against the three are being reviewed by the office.

The instrument was stolen Jan. 27 from Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Frank Almond after a concert at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

...The D.A.'s office said two men and a woman are in jail awaiting formal robbery charges.

"It appears the violin was the primary target of this robbery," Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said.
Did the three thugs know the value of the violin, $6 MILLION?

Were they working for someone else?

Where's the violin?
