Vt. man pleads not guilty in Robert Frost theftVermont man pleads not guilty to charges he stole original Robert Frost papers
WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) ' A 42-year-old Vermont man has pleaded not guilty to charges he stole original papers and cards written by the poet Robert Frost and received more than $20,000 for them.
Hartford police say Timothy Bernaby of Hartland was arrested Friday on a charge of grand larceny.
Bernaby used to work for Listen Community Services, an organization in Lebanon, N.H., that helps low-income residents in both New Hampshire and Vermont. Executive Director Merilynn Bourne says the Frost documents were in a desk that was donated to the organization last year. She says Bernaby is no longer employed there because of this incident, and that she hopes to return the documents to their rightful owner, whom she declined to name.
Bernaby pleaded not guilty in court Monday, posted bail and left without commenting.
