LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire school district is happy it has its plow truck back for winter, now that it’s no longer needed as a prime piece of evidence in a criminal case.

The truck was stolen during a burglary at Laconia High School and 34-year-old Dennis Lefebvre pleaded guilty Wednesday to the break-in and to receiving stolen property.

The truck was impounded as evidence. Before Lefebvre’s plea, his lawyer had argued the truck needed to be retained to protect the integrity of any physical evidence, including possible fingerprint and DNA testing. An attorney for the school district said the truck could be photographed or videotaped.

The truck is used for plowing, salting and sanding and general maintenance.
