A Cordova man has been indicted in the theft of the glasses once worn by Sir Elton John.

Matthew Colvin, 26, was charged Monday with theft of property over $1,000. He could face up to four years in prison, if convicted.

Colvin was a museum visitor when he allegedly stole the glasses from a museum display case. The glasses were returned last week. He was identified by fingerprints found on the case and later admitted to taking the glasses, valued at $2,031.25.

Colvin is being held in the Shelby County Jail on $25,000 bond. He was extradited Monday from DeSoto County, Miss. Police caught Colvin and recovered the stolen goods in front of a house in Southaven.
