Second man admits Surrey rhinoceros burglary charge
A second man has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to burgle after a rhinoceros head was stolen from a Surrey museum.
Tony Moore, 30, of Ottowa Road, Tilbury, Essex, was charged over a raid at Haslemere Educational Museum in May 2011.
Jamie Channon, 33, of Melba Gardens, Tilbury, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to burgle at an earlier hearing.
Moore was remanded in custody to be sentenced along with Channon at Guildford Crown Court on 7 September.
Rhinoceros horns are used as an ingredient in some alternative medicines.
Surrey Police said the pair were identified after the rhino head theft was featured on BBC1's Crimewatch show in September.
The pair have also admitted conspiracy to burgle 13 supermarkets in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hertfordshire, in which more than £60,000 worth of cigarettes were stolen.
A spokeswoman for Surrey Police said the rhino head had not been recovered.
