The Camden County Museum is celebrating after more than 130 stolen arrowheads have finally been returned.
The incident dating back to 2016, when two men busted into the building, stealing numerous collectables.
Linn Creek Police Sargent David Stark says those individuals, Jesse Hansen and Jason Konwinski, eventually were captured and pleaded guilty to the robbery…but the arrowheads were held up in court for several years before they could be released.
Despite the recovery, a muzzleloader that had gold inside was apparently destroyed in an attempt to remove it and a WW2 era Hawaiian dollar bill remains missing.
Museum officials say they will now begin the long task of reviewing the retrieved items to re-categorize them properly.
In all, the estimated value of the arrowheads alone is around $11,000.
