TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Idaho police say they have recovered two of five replica Clovis Point artifacts stolen from a museum.

The Times-News reports (https://bit.ly/2oikDaR) that police also say they have identified a suspect who is already in jail on unrelated charges.

Authorities haven’t released the person’s name they believe is involved in the April 6 theft from the Herrett Center museum in Twin Falls.

Officials say a tip led to obtaining search warrants and the recovery on Thursday of two of the replica artifacts.

The five replicas together are valued at $15,000.



The replicas are based on pre-historic artifacts found at a site near Fairfield, north of Twin Falls.
