Magadan news say that really at night 6/7 of June from the regional museum a piece of Seymchan meteorite was stolen. It was 7255 grams. There is criminal investigation now.
They say that it could be after a TV program with stupid words about very high prices for the meteorites on "black market"... no comments...
