Wildlife officials arrested two men who stole a bag of sea turtles eggs in Palm Beach County over Memorial Day weekend.

Bruce Bivins, 63, was seen putting objects he dug out of the sand into a bag as he walked on Singer Island. He was later picked up by Carl Cobb, 63, in his truck.

A Florida Fish and Wildlife affidavit says an officer pulled both men over and found 93 sea turtle eggs in a bag.

They were charged with unlawful possession of sea turtle eggs.

Authorities say both men have had previous encounters with the law for mishandling sea turtle eggs.
