Because of this the trial against a 22 year old suspected for involvement in the theft have been postponed by the Swedish Prosecution Authority who confirms that the whole booty have been found.
Why was the trial postponed because of the find? Did the location suggest that the prosecutors' suspicious were incorrect?

According to Swedish radio a man has been taken into custody for dealing with stolen goods. The man was apprehended Thursday night for a suspected involvement in the return of the stolen funeral regalia according to a press release by prosecuter Isabelle Bjursten.

Eskilstuna Crown Court have sentenced the 22-year old charged with the theft of the royal funeral regalia from Strängnäs cathedral to 4.5 years in prison & to pay a 90 000 SEK fine
Although first denying the charge he later admitted to being the one who performed the theft. This, together with his DNA being secured on the shattered glass boxes in the cathedral, makes the Crown Court certain that he is the main perpetrator of the crime.

Has the regalia been damaged somehow or is it in a good state ?

In the context of the Swedish courts, isn't that a severe sentence? I am thinking of the man at the center of the events that led the King to amend the Swedish Academy bylaws, who was sentenced to 2 years in prison after his conviction for rape.

According to what respected attorney Viktor Bank tweeted earlier the normal punishment for both a serious theft and rape normally is around two years in prison. The punishment for serious thefts are on a scale between 6 months and 6 years. Since this is deemed by the court to be an exceptionally serious theft in regard to national and cultural interests they find it suitable to weigh in on the higher end of the scale.

Unfortunately they're in a very bad state. According to an expert at leading Swedish auction house Bukowskis who had a look at the pictures they should be able to be renovated to somewhat their original status. https://www.nsk.se/2019/02/14/stulna...ftigt-skadade/
