Denver (AP) - A Colorado man has pleaded not guilty to charges of illegally selling and transporting southwestern archaeological artifacts.
Robert B. Knowlton of Grand Junction entered his plea Wednesday in Denver federal court. He's accused of selling a pipe, a knife and a knife point taken from federal land and mailing them from Colorado to Utah.
Knowlton is among more than 25 people caught up in a federal sting in the Four Corners region. Knowlton ran an Internet-based business called Bob's Flint Shop. A search warrant affidavit says he told an undercover informant that his collection included about 3,700 artifacts with retail value of a half-million dollars or more.
