MEMPHIS, TN (AP) - Elton John's heart-shaped glasses have been recovered after they were stolen from a museum, and Memphis police say a man accused of taking them is being sought.

The Rock 'n' Soul Museum reported April 21 that an employee discovered the glasses valued at more than $2,000 had been taken out of a display case during business hours.

Police say an investigator lifted prints and matched them to a suspect identified as 26-year-old Matthew Colvin. Police said in a news release Tuesday that investigators called Colvin on Monday and he told them where the glasses were.

Police in Southaven, Mississippi, retrieved the glasses, and an arrest warrant for theft was issued for Colvin.

Authorities released no other information on Colvin, but asked anyone who knows his whereabouts to get in touch.
