Elton John's heart-shaped glasses stolen from Memphis museum

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Officials say a pair of Elton John's heart-shaped glasses has been stolen from a display case at a Memphis museum.

Memphis police said Wednesday the glasses were taken from the Memphis Rock n' Soul Museum. Officers were called to the museum Tuesday night, when employees noticed the glasses were missing.

Officers said the case holding the glasses sustained no real damage. Police said a museum manager told officers someone would have to use a set of tools to remove the item from the case. An officer processed the case for fingerprints.

Flamboyant glasses and outfits have been part of the singer's signature look.

Museum executive director John Doyle says these glasses are valued at about $2,000.

No arrests have been made, and the search for the glasses continues.
