Recording equipment reported stolen from former Motown star Martha Reeves has turned up in a Detroit pawnshop, the Free Press reports. The equipment was taken last week from the childhood home of Reeves, who's now a Motor City councilwoman.

After originally claiming the value of the stolen goods to be $1 million—reflecting their emotional worth—Reeves lowered the figure to $100,000. "It's a couple of microphones and some big piece of electronic something—and it has her name on it," the store owner said. (More Martha Reeves stories.)
