Thieves steal bags of manure from boy's honesty stall
Thieves have been caught on camera stealing bags of manure from a 10-year-old boy's stall in northern New South Wales.
Marshall Hosking from Bilambil has been running the business - filling and selling dozens of bags - for the past year but in the past two months his stall has been targeted by thieves.
"We make a lot of money with it, Grandpa helps me picking up the poo and bags it and he does the zip ties," Marshall said.
"I'm saving up to get a laptop for high school."
He says he feels sad and disappointed by the thefts.
His grandfather Peter Hocking described the robberies as heartbreaking.
"It's just heartbreaking for him because he spends all day picking 20 bags' worth and it's all gone the next morning."
After being cleaned out a few months ago, Mr Hosking installed security cameras but the latest theft occurred just last week.
"I'd say they're local because it's too regular," he said.
Despite being robbed Marshall said he'll continue to run his honesty box system and hopes the thieves might even return to pay him what he's owed.
"Hopefully they'll come back and put the money in the box," Mr Hosking said.
