Two people were charged on Thursday after they were found with two pieces of elephant tusks with a street value of Sh3.2 million.
Wambua Muia and David Mutua appeared before Senior Resident Magistrate Damaris Karani at Makindu Law Courts.
The prosecution said they were arrested in Emali town on Wednesday night by officers of the Kenya Wildlife Service.
The officers, who were tipped off, pretended they were buyers interested in the 32kg tusks.
Muia and Mutua denied the charges and were remanded to Emali police station.
The court will rule on their application for release on May 22.
