Andrew Edward Davis, 18, and Nathaniel Aaront Doctor, 19, are facing a charge of conspiring to violate the Marine Turtle Protection Act.

An incident summary report was not immediately available, but Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Liz Barraco said her agency was alerted to the four by Jupiter Island police around 3:30 a.m.

An FWC officer responded and found Davis, Doctor and the two juveniles inside a 2015 Chevrolet with a bucket containing the 29 hatchlings.
