<span style="color: #33CCFF">CHAMPION — State police say a Pittsburgh man stole a mounted deer head, animal pelts and other items worth about $2,700 from the 32nd annual Pennsylvania State Taxidermy & Wildlife Art Championship, Convention and Trade Show earlier this month.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 57-year-old David Bobeck, and a woman who answered his listed home phone Friday says he doesn't want to comment.
Bobeck faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday on theft and receiving stolen property charges filed earlier this week. But state police say the charges relate to an incident March 3 during the convention at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Somerset County.
The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown says police found the deer head; fox, mountain lion and bobcat pelts; a deer skull and some mounted fish in Bobeck's car.</span>
It was very sad. I never would have thought in a million years that someone among us would have tried to steal something. I talked to Dave for app. 2 hours that morning. I was totally shocked when I found out he did it. Thankfully, one of our members walked the parking lot, and the rest is history.
yes, he is a taxidermist and i was talking with him also at one of the vendors he stole from, what a shame you go there and get show discounts and you steal from your vendors , you have major problems. Lucky i did not catch him in the act he would have two bad legs.
