Norwich Castle rhino horn theft bid: Second man charged
- 3 August 2012
- From the section Norfolk
A third man arrested over the attempted theft of a rhino horn from Norwich Castle Museum has been charged.
Patrick Kiely, 29, of Eleanor Street, Bow, east London, has been charged over the incident in February.
Nihad Mahmod, 19, of no fixed address, was last month jailed for two-and-a-half years for attempted theft.
Mr Kiely is due to appear before Cambridge magistrates on 10 August. A 21-year-old from Newham, east London, remains on bail.
The museum has since replaced the rhino horn with a replica.
On the black market, rhino horns can sell for about £50,000 per kilo.
