    A Georgia man arrested for stealing turtle eggs in Baldwin County pleaded guilty in court Wednesday.

    Prosecutors say Kelly Ard violated the federal endangered species act in July when he stole 2 turtle eggs.

    He and his friends were captured on surveillance video at a condo near Gulf Shores.

    Those turtle eggs later turned up in a trash can in his condo.

    Investigators say during an interview Ard confessed to the crime.

    Ard was given 2 years probation and a $5000 fine.
