Wenlok Jug found in Surrey

A stolen Medieval bronze jug has been recovered in Surrey, UK, by Bedfordshire Police. The Wenlok Jug was taken from a high security display cabinet in a Luton museum in a daring smash and grab raid on Saturday 12th May. Standing 31.5cm tall, and weighing 6.1kgs, it is decorated with coats of arms, badges and is inscribed with the words “MY LORD WENLOK”. As Luton Today reports:
Following an in depth investigation the jug, which was valued at £750,000, was discovered at a property in Tadworth, Surrey, in the early hours of Monday morning. Two people were arrested at the location. One man, 23-year-old Ronald Nash, has been charged with handling stolen property and will appear at Luton Magistrates Court today. The second has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
The thieves who stole the object are still at large. Is this the same Mr Nash from Pitwood Green, Tadworth, Surrey? The men however were acquitted.
