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.
