Swedish police said in a statement: “Every indication now suggests that Karl IX’s stolen funeral regalia has been found in the Stockholm area, but the police are working intensively to have it confirmed 100 percent.”

Two crowns and an orb that served as funeral regalia for Karl IX, a 17th century monarch, were stolen in July from Strängnäs cathedral near Stockholm.

The thieves escaped across a lake by way of speedboat.

Described as priceless, the stolen items are made of gold, pearls and precious stones.

One suspect, age 22, is on trial in connection with the crime, according to the BBC. Police are looking for “additional perpetrators.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
