Realtor fired after allegedly dumping animal carcasses at home

PHILADELPHIA, July 6 (UPI) -- A Philadelphia realtor was fired after video surfaced of her allegedly throwing dead mice and snakes on a neighboring home for sale, police said.

Andrea Straub, a real estate agent in the local Prudential Fox & Roach office, allegedly took umbrage with her neighbor's for sale sign in the upscale Philly suburb Lower Merion Township, where homes are regularly valued more than $1 million. Police reports indicated Straub thought the sign violated township codes and she kicked it down.

Surveillance video taken in June then showed Straub allegedly dumping dead mice and snakes on her neighbor's driveway in an effort to hamper the sale. The homeowner said tree branches were cut down and left on the lawn.

Straub's lawyer called the allegations "horrible falsities" and said she'd lost her job due to the negative publicity, The Philadelphia Inquirer said Friday.

Police have charged Straub and her husband Jonathon with harassment and criminal mischief.
