Stolen Swedish Crown Jewels recovered by police

Two gold crowns and an orb, the funeral regalia of Sweden's 17th century King Carl and Queen Christina stolen in a spectacular heist, have been recovered, authorities said Tuesday, amid reports they were found in a dustbin.

After spotting the bin a security guard became curious and found a number of items believed to be the stolen jewels inside.

Sweden's crown jewels, which were stolen in a dramatic motorboat heist in July a year ago, may have been recovered, police have said.

More details will come "when we know for sure if it is the stolen regalia".

Currently, in Eskilstuna District Court, the trial against a 22-year-old man accused of stealing the regalia from the Strängnäs this summer is underway.

The presumed discovery of the items interrupted the trial of a 22-year-old Swedish national who's now standing trial on charges that he stole the artifacts after his arrest in September. Pictured left: The grave of Karl IX at the cathedral.

He stated that worldwide media has been putting pressure on Venezuela and manipulating facts about the South American country. On Wednesday, Guaido, the leader of Venezuela's opposition-led National Assembly, declared himself acting president.

The artifacts, the so-called funeral regalia that are placed inside or on top of a coffin to symbolize a deceased royal's identity and social ranking, were stolen a year ago from a Cathedral, west of Stockholm.

A second man has been detained but not charged.

Swedish police have not yet confirmed the founding.

The search for both the culprits and the jewels gained global attention after the 17th-century royal crowns were taken from a cathedral in Strängnäs, one hour from Stockholm, with the suspects then seen fleeing the scene on women's bicycles and a motorboat.

'The two men hurriedly jumped on board and it sped off, ' Rowell said, adding that they 'appeared non-Nordic.' He didn't elaborate.
