WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials arrested two men who were found with a bag of sea turtle eggs in Palm Beach County over Memorial Day weekend.

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

Sixty-three-year-old Bruce Bivins was spotted putting objects he dug out of the sand into a bag as he walked on Singer Island.

A Florida Fish and Wildlife affidavit says an officer later stopped Bivins in a truck driven by sixty-three year old Carl Cobb.

They had 93 eggs in a bag. They were charged with unlawful possession of sea turtle eggs.
