Harvard professor accused of trying to steal manure from farmer
ROCKPORT, Mass. (AP) - A Harvard University economics professor was charged with misdemeanour larceny and trespassing for allegedly trying to steal manure from a farm.
A stable manager, Phillip Casey, called police after finding Martin Weitzman on the farm last Friday, police said. The horse farm uses the manure as fertilizer or sells it for $35 US per truckload. Officer Michael Marino said Weitzman also was charged with malicious destruction of property because tire marks were left by his truck. Weitzman did not return telephone calls for comment.
Gee... Of all things, Manure??? What is the world coming to??? This guy is sure one desperado man. Unless I'm sua gu, but is manure that much worth to be stolen?? argh....
