One Harvard employee has been charged after reportedly stealing $80,000 of the University’s money.
The alleged thief stole the money to spend it on Lego and gadgets for his house.
Shawn Bunn, 44, worked for Harvard for 17 years, and saw his home raided by police after suspicions grew that he had been using his work credit card to pay for personal items.
Bunn is thought to have carried out the thefts over a number of years, and did not just buy Lego (because that would be A LOT of Lego).
When Harvard University police raided his house, they found TV sets, electrical goods, multiple iPads, a table saw and oddly a garbage disposal.
District Attorney Marian Ryan claimed:
This is a breach of trust by a school employee.
Over a period of four years, the defendant is alleged to have made personal purchases in excess of $80,000 therefore diverting resources from the students and faculty of Harvard University.
Bunn is facing charges including larceny, false entry in corporate books, and using forged documents, and will be back in court on October 28th.
