Obsessed thief gets the pen

A Milwaukee man whose attorney said he had become obsessed with the idea of stealing a Stradivarius violin was sentenced Monday to seven years in prison for robbing the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster of his instrument after a performance in January.

Salah Salahadyn, 42, fired a Taser at Frank Almond as he walked to his car. Police traced confetti left by the weapon to Salahadyn’s barber, who had purchased the Taser months earlier. He led police to Salahadyn, who eventually led police to the instrument.
