RALEIGH, N.C. -
The State Capitol Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man and woman who were caught on video Monday afternoon taking a baby dinosaur replica from a display at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
A young couple passed through the Prehistoric North Carolina exhibit while other visitors were in the area. They returned three minutes later, at which point the male jumped the exhibit barrier, picked up the dinosaur casting, climbed out and put it in a large multi-colored purse carried by the female accomplice.
The male, believed to be in his 20s, has light brown hair and is about 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was wearing a dark gray T-shirt, white shorts with gray or green horizontal-stripes and black and white sneakers. The female, believed to be in her 20s, has brown hair, is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, and was wearing a pink shirt, blue shorts and ankle-high boots.
