PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police are pointing at two exhibition workers in the theft of two massive sets of elk antlers following the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Pittsburgh.

Investigators say Gary Felts, 46, and Stephen Lee, 44, abducted the antlers Sunday night while a vendor at the convention center waited to load a truck.

Police say the vendor reported the theft and the men were detained on a sidewalk outside with the antlers, valued at more than $500,000.

Felts, of Joppa, Md., and Lee, of Cumberland, Md., were charged with theft and conspiracy and released on $5,000 bail. Phone listings for both men are disconnected. Police say they work for a Maryland-based expo company.

The antlers were returned to the Rexburg, Idaho-based exhibitor.
