2nd defendant sentenced in theft of 10,000-year-old mammoth tusk from Campbell Creek Science Center

A second man has been sentenced in the theft of a 10,000-year-old fossilized woolly mammoth tusk from an Anchorage museum.

Federal prosecutors say 41-year-old Gary Boyd of Wasilla was sentenced Wednesday to 33 months in prison.

Itís the same sentence U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason handed out in April to co-conspirator Martin Elze.

Both were convicted of removal of a paleontological resource.

Boyd and Elze on March 18, 2018, broke into the Campbell Creek Science Center, stole the tusk, cut it into pieces and sold them.
