Mississippi - The man who police say stole Elton John's iconic heart-shaped glasses from a Memphis museum is behind bars.

WMC-TV reports 26-year-old Matthew Colvin was arrested Tuesday in Southhaven, Mississippi, and he will be extradited back to Memphis on Wednesday.

The Rock 'n' Soul Museum reported on 21 April that an employee discovered the glasses, valued at more than $2k, had been taken out of a display case during business hours. An investigator lifted prints and matched them to Colvin.

Police said Tuesday investigators called Colvin on Monday and he told them where the glasses were. They were able to retrieve them from a mailbox.

The glasses are to be back on display Wednesday. Flamboyant glasses and outfits have been part of Elton John's signature look.
