Is that a 3 Ton Rock In Your Pocket?

Slashdot and Fark have been touting the story that a 3 ton meteorite, left over from the (unexplained, airborne) explosion that occurred over the Tunguskian forest in 1908 was stolen from the yard of the Tunguska Space Event foundation.

However, Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy has already debunked the story. There are no known/confirmed meteorite fragments from Tunguska.
