Man faces charges in flute theft

BOSTON (AP) — A man accused of stealing a $14,000 silver flute from a Boston student months ago is expected in court this week.

The Suffolk district attorney’s office says the Milton man faced arraignment  on larceny charges. He has not been identified.

The instrument and an iPad were stolen when the Boston University music major stepped away from an empty classroom at the end of August. BU police say they checked security footage from the area and searched pawn shop databases to try and find the instrument.

University officers were eventually able to identify a suspect who agreed to return the stolen items last month.

Police say the student was shocked when she learned officers had found the instrument.
