Wilkes-Barre, PA -- Stanley Carter, a 21-year-old man discovered hiding in a Pennsylvania family’s attic, said he’s not a criminal, but was only trying to implement President-Elect Barack Obama’s “spread-the-wealth” policy.
Carter had apparently been living in the attic for more than a week, sneaking downstairs at night to raid the refrigerator and use the bathroom. He only was caught after cash, an iPod and a laptop went missing.
“These people have more than they need,” Carter allegedly said. “Why shouldn’t they share it with me?”
