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.
