Florida Man Charged With Illegally Importing Dinosaur Fossils
Complaint charging ERIC PROKOPI with multiple crimes relating to a scheme to illegally import dinosaur fossils into the United States, including a nearly complete Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton from Mongolia, a Saurolophus angustirostris skeleton, also from Mongolia, and a Microraptor skeleton from China. PROKOPI was arrested this morning by federal agents at his home in Gainesville, Florida, and will be presented at the federal courthouse in Gainesville this afternoon. PROKOPIs arrest follows an earlier civil suit filed by this Office seeking forfeiture of the Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton so that it can be returned to Mongolia. That action is pending before U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel.
