Add comment on:Rhino poacher indictment & plea illustrates real scheme trafficing endangered species
In February of 2012, Jarrod Wade Steffen, his mom and new wife all got caught with a large amount of cash at the Long Beach, CA airport after selling rhino horns in Orange County to Mr. Kha. The family had been monitored by U.S. Fish & Wildlife agents. Steffen's mother and wife appeared to know exactly what was going on, but for some reason the Feds choose not to prosecute. Steffen pled guilty and agreed to surrender his trucks, horse trailers and the $337,000 in cash that was seized at the Long Beach, CA airport arrest.
