Greek police said on Saturday that all the artifacts which had been stolen from the Ancient Olympia Museum in February have been recovered.

Three Greeks were arrested in connection with the case which had shocked Greece and two more were still at large, according to earlier report.

On Feb. 17 this year, masked perpetrators broke into the museum at the birthplace of the Olympic Games, immobilized a female guard and removed from displays some 70 bronze and clay objects, as well as a gold ring of significant value.
