$4,000 flute left on T bench in Boston is returned to owner

After nearly three weeks, the mystery surrounding a missing $4,000 flute ended on a positive note. An anonymous person turned the flute in to MBTA Transit Police, who returned the instrument to the young woman who left it on a bench at the Park Street station March 25, MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said Thursday. After the instrument was reported missing, Transit Police released several surveillance photographs and videos showing a man picking up the flute’s case from a bench and walking onto a train with it. Both the flute’s owner and the person who returned it wished to remain anonymous, Pesaturo said.
