It was no “Viva Las Vegas” on March 14th when thieves broke into the Elvis-A-Rama museum. They got away with a bundle:

  • Elvis’ 1953 Humes High School ring
  • His solid gold I.D. bracelet
  • His gold and onyx medallion with diamonds spelling “Elvis”
  • His diamond and gold pendant and chain
  • His 1955 Hamilton wrist watch
  • His 1956 Louisiana Hayride ring
  • His 1957 Memphis Police Shield ring
  • His Las Vegas Hilton logo scarf
  • His diamond-encrusted 41 carat Star Ruby ring

Needless to say, fans are “Crying in the Chapel.” The museum security staff says “I Got Stung.” “Suspicious Minds” everywhere say it’s “Too Much.”

We hope you will view the artifacts carefully. If you have any knowledge to share about their whereabouts or about the identity of the thieves, please contact Detective Kelli Hickle, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Oh, and a few words to the thieves:

  • “It’s Now or Never”
  • “Surrender”
  • Get set for some “Jailhouse Rock”
