(AP) Two Massachusetts men are accused of stealing a swimming pool from a Granby backyard. Timothy Morin, 37, and David Hawley, 18, both of Westfield, were charged Friday with trespassing, larceny, conspiracy, and possession of burglary tools.
Granby police say they found parts from the disassembled aboveground pool in the rear seat of the men's car, about a mile away from the yard where the pool had stood.
Police say the men told them they took the pool for scrap metal and felt they were doing the owners a favor by getting rid of it for them.
Police also recovered from the car: seven automotive batteries, a coil of copper pipe, wire with a copper core, an aluminum pneumatic manifold with brass fittings, bolt cutters, metal shears and a hammer.
