The industry can relax! The expensive and super-sized set of headphones that had been stolen from the top of a bus shelter in Halifax have been returned to the scene of the crime.

Const. Holly Smith of Halifax Regional Police says the huge headphones were returned overnight Thursday after they went missing sometime in the last two weeks.

Smith said the headphones, measuring more than a metre wide and a metre tall, had been wrapped around a city bus shelter as part of a Dairy Farmers of Canada advertising campaign.

Smith said the brackets were damaged when the $12,000 headphones were removed from the shelter in the city’s south end.

She said there are no suspects but the Dairy Farmers of Canada are not interested in pressing charges in the case.
