Police: Main Line real estate agents toss vermin on lawn

Two real estate agents in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb are accused of tossing dead mice and snakes onto the lawn of their neighbor's house, which is up for sale.

Police in Lower Merion also allege Jonathan and Andrea Straub were caught on video cutting branches off trees and knocking over "For Sale" signs. They've been cited for disorderly conduct and harassment.

The Straubs' three-bedroom home is also for sale, on the market for $1 million.

William Davis Jr., an attorney representing Andrea Straub, says the allegations are "preposterous." An attorney who represents Jonathan Straub, Anyhony List Jr., tells The Philadelphia Inquirer the charges are "absurd."

Police say the woman who lives at the home had been hospitalized, but that a house sitter told her someone had been knocking over the "For Sale" sign.
