Harvard Employee Accused of Stealing $80,000 to Buy Legos and iPads


Shawn Bunn, a computer lab manager at Harvard University and verified adult baby, has been accused of using his University-issued credit card to pay for $80,000 worth of Lego sets and electronics.

Bunn, 44, allegedly submitted false receipts to the university that didn’t match up with his purchases for about four years; according to the DA’s office, Harvard finally caught on during a review of its finances by the Harvard Risk Management and Audit Services Department. Bunn was arraigned on charges of larceny, false entry in corporate books, and uttering of forged documents.

District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement, via Boston.com:

“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.”

He was released after the arraignment, and will return to court on Oct. 28. The fate of his toys remains unclear.
