MILWAUKIE, Ore. – A 74-year-old Milwaukie man has his prized vintage guitar back.

Leroy Finck’s 1957 Fender Telecaster guitar was stolen during a burglary in April. On Friday, a Portland police officer recovered the stolen guitar.

Finck said he bought the Telecaster in 1957 for $300. He said he played it every night since then, and also played it in church. He offered a reward of $1,000 and another Fender Telecaster to get his prized guitar back.

Police said suspects in the case have been identified, but they did not release any more details about the investigation.
