A valuable dress that was stolen from the hotel room of actress Lupita Nyong’o after she wore it to the Oscars has been recovered, Los Angeles police said.

The as-yet-unidentified thief who stole the 12 Years a Slave star’s dress apparently returned it to the London Hotel in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Timesreports. A sheriff’s department spokesman indicated some confidence that the pearl-covered dress discovered in a hotel bathroom is the same one Nyong’o wore to present J. K. Simmons’s Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

“We believe this dress is the dress that was stolen from the London Hotel,” a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Nyong’o’s dress was one of the biggest stories of Oscar night even before it was stolen; covered in 6,000 pearls, the dress was reportedly worth $150,000.
