Hermitage museum The 30th item stolen from the Hermitage Fine Arts Museum in St. Petersburg Ė a silver jar with an ivory handle enclosed with turquoise - has been returned to the city police by a local private collector on the condition of anonymity, a city police source told Itar-Tass on Sunday.

The investigation is still in progress, as the Prosecutor Generalís Office has extended its period until December 31, 2006. Thirty items have been returned to the museum. Two suspects are in custody.

A police source said earlier they had received information about the whereabouts of about 70 items, but some items might have been sold abroad.
