A Mukilteo woman has her French horn back, five years after it was stolen out of her car.

The Daily Herald reports (http://is.gd/uNEonS ) that a man found the horn — a high-end, brass triple horn — in a Redmond pawn shop in 2011. He decided to return it after coming across news stories about the theft.

The horn belonged to 61-year-old Terry Preshaw, an attorney who is also first horn in the Mukilteo Community Orchestra. Preshaw bought the instrument used in 2009 for $6,500, but it was stolen after she left it in her unlocked car outside her Everett office the following year.

She says she's stunned and grateful to have her horn back.
