West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - West Fargo Police are investigating a garage theft from Monday afternoon. Inside that garage were dinosaur fossils.

Police say a dinosaur jaw was taken from these garages. The owners of the former Dinosaurs and More Store in West Fargo have kept many of their display items in storage.

Police believe the burglar broke a lock and entered through a side door. The stolen dinosaur jaw bone is estimated at $20,000. If caught, the burglar would be facing felony charges.

Mike Reitan – Assistant West Fargo Police Chief: “The owner of the dinosaur bone is making contact with others in the field because it is rather unique. He's also going to monitor ebay and the other online sites.”

There were other smaller items reported stolen as well.
