Two dozen people were indicted during mid-June in a sweeping federal investigation into ancient artifacts stolen from public and tribal lands in the U.S. Southwest area.

The federal indictments unsealed June 10 accuse the people of stealing, receiving or trying to sell artifacts including bowls, stone pipes, sandals, arrowheads, jars, hair ornaments and necklaces.
