A $20,000 bottle of wine stolen from a Hopkinton, Mass., liquor store has been returned unopened.

The bottle of 1945 Mouton Rothschild plus three other bottles of wine valued at $300 to $875 were stolen from Hopkinton Wine & Spirits last week.

Store security video had been shown on local television newscasts, and Boston police received a call Sunday from someone who recognized the suspect in the video.

The caller contacted the suspect, got the wine and turned it in to Boston police. They in turn contacted Hopkinton police, who returned the wine to the store owner.

There have been no arrests.

Store owner Clelland Johnson tells The MetroWest Daily News that he's just happy to have the wine back.
