Cops Recover Nicaraguan poet’s stolen sword

July 25, 2008

NICARAGUA — Nicaraguan police recovered the sword of Nicaragua´s revered poet Rubén Darío after it was stolen last week from the late poet´s home, which is now a museum.

Police in the colonial city of León, where Darío was born, also detained 18-year-old Franco Flores, one of the two young men who allegedly nabbed the sword from the Ruben Darío museum last Thursday. The other alleged suspect, Leon resident Isaac Francisco García, 19, remains at large, according to police spokeswoman Marianela Bove.

Darío (1867-1916), one of the most renowned modern Latin American poets, used the sword in 1908 on a diplomatic mission in Spain.
