Man charged with trafficking walrus tusks
HATTIESBURG — Federal authorities in Mississippi have charged a man with possessing and selling ivory walrus tusks.
Abajo Renae Ingram is charged in the two-count criminal information filed in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg. The court document contains few details other than to say Ingram possessed and sold the tusks on two occasions in April 2007 in violation of the federal Game Conservation Acts.
The charges are misdemeanors. Court records didn’t say where Ingram lives. No attorney was listed in court records.
A message left last Friday was not immediately returned from the U.S. Attorney’s office, which was closed for the Veterans Day holiday.
