Man charged in street sweeper joy ride

Manchester NH; An unattended street sweeper was just too tempting for a Bedford man early yesterday morning.

Michael Moran, 26, of 19 Ministerial Road, was charged with taking the street sweeper without the owner's consent and with drunken driving.

The street sweeper, owned by Outdoor Pride, was being used in the parking garage off Kosciuszko Street around closing time for local taverns. The operator got off and left for a moment when Moran got on the machine, started it up and drove off, according to Manchester police.

He drove the machine north to the end of Kosciuszko Street and turned east unto to Bridge Street and then south on Berkeley Street where he was caught by several people chasing him according to police.

Police said Moran admitted taking the street sweeper without permission and told them it was a stupid thing to do.

(It sure was, but I would have done the same thing when I was that age. While sober no less. Just to say that I did.)
