Moss Man, Thwarted

Gregory Liascos of Portland, Oregon is a rather clever man, but probably not a dog lover.

A caretaker at the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals in Hillsboro, Oregon found a hole cut in a wall of an exterior bathroom last Wednesday and called the local police. The police, including a K-9 team, were on the scene around 5:00 am Thursday morning. The dog alerted his handler that he smelled something, then bit the ground, which cried out in pain.

It was Liascos, wearing a ghillie suit -- think Marine snipers -- that made him look like a patch of grass.

He is currently a guest of Washington County, pending a hearing on charges of burglary and criminal mischief.
