Couple Steals $10,000 Baby Dino Replica From Museum

July 17, 2014


Police are looking for a young couple who stole a replica of a hatchling duck-bill dinosaur (Edmontosaurus) from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences earlier this week. As seen in this surveillance footage, the dickbag in the stupid shorts jumps a glass barrier and yanks the little dino from a nest. And before you call the police, no, it wasn't me -- I'm not some baby snatcher.

The Edmontosaurus, or duck-billed, hatchling was stolen Monday in the Prehistoric North Carolina exhibit. The replica is about 12-14 inches long and is worth around $10,000.

State Capitol Police released surveillance video of the suspects Wednesday. The theft is considered a felony offense.

Police believe the two are also connected to a similar incident at the Museum of History. The value of that theft was less than $1,000.

Damn, stealing from museums? That's pretty low. "GIVE THEM BOTH THE CHAIR." Ahahahahahahaha -- Indiana Jones, ladies and gentlemen! I think he's been drinking.

Keep going for the surveillance footage.

Thanks to lilco, who agrees the only dinosaurs you should be leaving the museum with should be purchased from the gift shop.

    When caught and tried, the punishment should be to try and steal a baby tiger from the zoo. If they escape, no jail time. If they don't escape, no jail time.

    if it cost 1000 to make that little model the museum should shop around more

  • dougfunnay

    good museum quality models can take hundreds if not thousands of man hours
    but yeah i guess strolling down the toy isle with a 20 in hand is always an option

    surely other museums(there are loads of them) must need similar models and once you made one it can be massproduced?

    going in on it with a few dozen other museums to set something up seems like it'd bring that down some

    I can see the distinctive showpieces running up huge bills but rubber eggs?

  • AthrunWilshire

    It's $10,000 model.
    Something else from another museum cost $1000.

    Hi def, low shutter speed footage of the tops of their heads. They might want to think about respecing their video surveillance setup.
