Introducing Moss Man: Oregon Man Arrested For Allegedly Breaking Into Rock Museum

Hillsboro, Oregon Police appeared unsure whether to book Gregory Liascos, 36, or to water him. Liascos was wearing a “ghille suit” commonly worn by military snipers to hide as moss after allegedly breaking into the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals. A police dog found him lying among the foliage and nipped him — causing the moss to yelp.

No precious gems were removed from the museum but a janitor had previously found a hole in a wall and alerted police.

He is charged with burglary and criminal mischief.

Next time he might try a stone outfit for the rock museum. After all, a rolling stone gathers no moss (or police dogs).
