Man Destroys His Buddy’s House With A Bulldozer Over An $80 Debt



COLORADO-For 12 years, Ron Morphis painstakingly built a life on a farm in Yoder in eastern El Paso County, restoring antique vehicles, finishing an addition to his home and putting up a garage. In one hour, his neighbor destroyed it all over a debt of $80. Jack Herbst, 63, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of felony criminal mischief and booked into the El Paso County Jail on $10,000 bond, accused of going on a rampage through Morphis’ property with a front-end loader. Morphis’ sister, Loranne McLaughlin, said Thursday the front-end loader carved a path of destruction at 36630 Bellemont Road that caused $250,000 worth of damage. The brick garage Morphis built was destroyed. The two-bedroom addition to his home was destroyed. Six vehicles, including a restored 1956 Willys Jeep and 1949 Chevy pickup owned by his father were overturned. Two campers and a trailer were damaged. A propane tank and farm equipment were destroyed. Electrical and phone lines were ripped out. Lastly, more than a dozen mature elm trees were ripped out of the ground with a chain attached to the front-end loader. All of it allegedly done by a neighbor, a man Morphis considered a friend whom he had helped out in the past.


Morphis, who works as a driver escorting tractor-trailer trucks carrying oversize loads, had agreed to buy a trailer from Herbst for $400, his sister said. Morphis paid Herbst $320 and was planning to pay him the rest when he got paid on Friday, she said. On Monday or Tuesday, though, Herbst left a voice mail on Morphis’ phone saying “I want my $80 or I’m going to flatten everything” Ronnie owns, McLaughlin said. When Morphis returned home from work on Wednesday he found his property in ruins. He called the sheriff and then he called his sister. “He’s destroyed my life,” McLaughlin said her brother told her. “He’s destroyed everything I owned.”

Never lend people money. Even if they are friends. It just makes everything messy.

I fully understand the reaction, it's not the money. This is about the principal - you think you can screw me over and walk away? I'll shove that idea straight back up your arse with interest......and he did!! haha
