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.
