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.”

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
