Police arrested a Tulsa man for stealing a 150-year-old violin valued at $10,000. William Joseph Kent, 21, is in Tulsa County Jail on complaints of grand larceny, petit larceny and larceny from a retailer.

As police investigated the thefts, they saw William Kent near the music store and took him into custody. They found the stolen merchandise and returned it to the owners.

Kent is being held in lieu of a $3,500 bond.
