ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - A former school employee is facing federal charges for allegedly stealing human bones from the anatomy laboratory at Ohio University.

Twenty-eight-year-old Weston Henri Moquin was charged this week with counts of transporting remains across state boundaries and stealing property from a federally funded agency.

Court documents say the Athens man took the bones between July 2011 and June 2012. Defense attorney Keith Yeazel told The Associated Press on Friday that his client sold the bones to support a drug habit. The Dispatch reports a settlement agreement would require Moquin to pay more than $84,000 in restitution.

Yeazel says Moquin in in a drug treatment program.
