Man Stole Swan Eggs From Nest, Cooked Them

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a central Florida man stole two swan eggs from a nest and then proceeded to cook them.
Lakeland police say 60-year-old Marcellino Rodriguez took the eggs from a nest on Lake Wire. He then allegedly took them home, scrambled them and consumed a portion.
Investigators say witnesses saw him in possession of the eggs about a week ago. When questioned by detectives he confessed and showed where he'd taken them from.
Rodriguez has been charged with petit theft. No information on whether he had obtained an attorney was immediately available.
