Florida Woman Arrested for Riding on Sea Turtle

Be careful what you post online! Stephanie Moore, 20, was jailed on a $2,000 bond on a felony warrant on charges of possessing, selling or molesting a marine turtle or eggs nest, the Melbourne Police Department said on Facebook. Moore was allegedly one of two women sitting on sea turtles in photographs from early July. After the pictures were shared online, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took up the case as a criminal investigation. The department asked for the public’s help in identifying the suspects. Moore was arrested after police in Melbourne, on Florida’s Atlantic coast, responded to a disturbance at a home Saturday. They determined a warrant had been out for her.
