NRA antler theft charges dropped against Maryland Men

Pittsburgh (AP) – Pittsburgh police aren’t
commenting on a prosecutor’s decision to drop charges against two
workers charged with stealing two massive sets of elk antlers after
the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Pittsburgh

Allegheny County District Attorney’s spokesman Mike Manko tells
the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the charges were withdrawn at
a scheduled preliminary hearing Tuesday after witnesses told police
they thought the men who worked for a Maryland exposition company
were returning the antlers, not walking away with them as a vendor
told police.

Online court records don’t list attorneys for 46-year-old Gary
Felts, of Joppa, Md., and 44-year-old Stephen Lee, of Cumberland,
Md. who were charged with theft May 1. The antlers worth more than
$15,000 each were returned to Velvet Ranch, a Rexburg, Idaho
hunting lodge that had a display at the NRA event.
