120 stolen artifacts returned to Polish museum in Chicago

June 20, 2012 (CHICAGO)

The items disappeared from the museum in the 900-block of North Milwaukee Avenue decades ago.

The artifacts include rare 18th and 19th century documents, prints and sketches.

Also stolen were military medals and World War II-era propaganda.

The FBI says the items are valued at $5 million. They were recovered from a home in Chicago in 2011.
