PHILADELPHIA---A heavy equipment operator who
is accused of being high on marijuana when a build-
ing collapsed onto a thrift store, killing six people
in the US, is in custody after surrendering to face
charges in the deaths, police said.
Sean Benschop, who has a lengthy police record,
surrendered Saturday and faces six counts of invol-
untary manslaughter, 13 counts of recklessly endan-
gering another person and one count of risking a
catastrophe in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
A warrant had been issued for his arrest and police
had been searching for him. He is awaiting arraign-
ment. Authorities believe the 42-year-old Benschop
had been using an excavator Wednesday when the
remains of the four-story building under demolition
gave way and toppled onto an attached Salvation
Army thrift store, killing two employees and four
customers and injuring 13 others.
Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison said a toxicology
report showed evidence that Benschop was high on
marijuana. That finding, combined with witness
statements and evidence from the scene, led to the
decision Friday to raid his North Philadelphia home
and later seek an arrest warrant, he said.
Benschop s attorney, Daine Grey, defended his
"This was an accident, but Mr Benschop is not
responsible," Grey said.
"And we believe that, in time, the facts will show
that he is not responsible."
Benschop was wearing a bandage on his right arm
when he turned himself into police. Grey said he had
been injured at a worksite, but he declined to say
where or when. Grey said Benschop was able to oper-
ate heavy equipment.
"He was completely able to operate a backhoe,"
"...He operated it safely, as he always does, and
he did not violate the law in any capacity.
"He has been doing this for more than 13 years.
He is very experienced. He has worked for a number
of contractors throughout the region. All of the con-
tractors have found him professional and found that
he did his work with the highest regard for the safety
of those around him."
Mayor Michael Nutter, in a statement Saturday
night, called for harsh charges and punishment for
"It is my hope that the harshest level of charges
are brought against Sean Benschop and
he is punished accordingly," Nutter said.
"We must also seek answers from property owners
Richard Basciano and Griffin T Campbell who hired
Benschop to do the significant job of operating
heavy equipment. These three individuals bear
the ultimate and sole responsibility for this tragedy.
Justice will only be served if Sean Benschop
receives a sentence that buries him in a jailhouse
forever, just like his victims were buried on Wednes-
Benschop, who also goes by the name Kary
Roberts, has been arrested at least 11 times since
1994 on charges ranging from drugs to theft to
weapons possession, according to court records.
He was twice sentenced to prison in the 1990s
after being convicted on drug trafficking charges.
Benschop s last arrest, on a charge of aggravated
assault, came in January 2012, but the case was
dismissed for lack of evidence. (AP)
