OU Lab Worker Admits to Stealing, Selling Human Bones
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- A former Ohio University lab assistant has pleaded guilty to stealing human bones from the school's medical college, and then selling them on eBay.
Weston Moquin pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of theft and interstate transportation of stolen property after allegedly stealing human skeletons, skulls, loose bones, and medical equipment from the school's Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Moquin worked at the school when he stole the items, which were mostly sold to out-of-state customers via his eBay account, according to U.S. Attorneys. The sale of the stolen items netted Moquin more than $84,000.
Moquin faces up to 20 years in prison, and has been ordered to pay restitution to Ohio University.
