Chicago's Drake hotel seeks return of stolen items

CHICAGO (AP) — If you ever stole anything from Chicago's Drake Hotel, you can give it back with no questions asked.

Officials at the Drake say countless items have been stolen since the hotel opened in 1920, and not just towels. They have launched an amnesty program they call, "Go Back in Time, Give Back the Crime."

Hotel officials say the items can be returned by mail or in person, "without guilt or suspicion."

Since its opening The Drake has hosted many royals, including Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Ronald Reagan also stayed there.

The hotel says the stolen items, memorabilia and stories about its famous guests will be part of a history tour of the hotel this spring.
