MIAMI (AP) - Two Miami-area men face felony charges after being caught with the tail of a federally protected loggerhead sea turtle.

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1DtAKo6 ) reports that the men were jailed in the Keys when authorities found the turtle tail in their truck along with three sharks. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials stopped the men because they were towing a trailer that was not properly secured with tie-downs.

The men were each charged with a felony count of possessing a sea turtle a misdemeanor count of having more sharks than the bag limit allows.
