From Dr. Carl Agee, at the University of NewMexico, in Albuquerque.
A 9490grams Sikhote-Alin was stolen from their museum right around Christmas time.
Please look at the picture: And feel free to copy it and send it around.
Please do inform any forums and sites you may be aware of, and that might be able to help.
And please keep an eye out for it during the Tucson Show, it could be offered for sale there.

Thank you very much for your help.

Dear Anne,

One of our museum display specimens was stolen out of its case -- most likely just before Christmas break, during opening hours. The case has a security alarm, but apparently the theft was not recorded as an alarm by UNM police. I discovered the that specimen was missing this morning when I was doing an inspection of the Meteorite Museum. The specimen is a "Sikhote Alin" weighing 9490 grams. I would like to alert the meteorite collector community to be on the look-out for this specimen, it is unique and easily identifiable as our property.
