Tottenham teens accused of swiping £1.2m Stradivarius violin (From Haringey Independent)

TWO Tottenham teenagers have been accused of stealing an antique violin worth £1.2m from a musician who had stopped for a sandwich.

The 1696 Antonio Stradivarius instrument – one of only 450 in the world – was swiped from outside Pret á Manger in Euston Station on November 29.

The 32-year-old musician, who had the precious violin on loan, had stopped for a bite to eat at around 8.30pm, and noticed the black, rectangular case had gone at around 9pm.
