    On April 21, 2008 Grammy-nominated classical violinist Philippe Quint was returning from a concert in Dallas.

    Inadvertently, Mr. Quint left a very expensive violin, a Stradivarius, in the back seat of a cab he had taken at the Manhattan Airport.

    The Stradivarius violin is one of the world most renowned and expensive.
