RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Talk about exploring the past. Police say a pair of thieves stole a baby dinosaur replica from a science museum and took props from a history exhibit at another facility.

A police statement says the 21-year-olds were charged with two counts of theft or destruction of property of public libraries and museums, a felony. Officials say they turned themselves in Thursday.

Surveillance cameras captured the man and woman taking a small model of the duck-billed Edmonotosaurus from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences on Monday. The model is valued at $10,000.

Police say they also took fake cabbage, lettuce, doilies and an antique medicine bottle from the North Carolina Museum of History on the same day. The items combined were worth less than $1,000.
