MILAN (AP) — Police in Milan have recovered jewelry said to have belonged to the late Argentine first lady Eva Peron that was stolen from a store in Spain nearly two years ago. (Scroll down for photos)

Italian Carabinieri, working with Spanish police, said Wednesday they found the diamond tiara, diamond earrings and rings worth 6 million euros in a hotel room on the outskirts of Milan.

Police say the jewels were stolen from a shop in Valencia, Spain, in December 2009. One man was arrested over the theft last year in Milan.

The iconic Peron, known as Evita, died in 1952.
