Heath's Uncle -- Alleged Bobcat Burgler

7/18/2008 9:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The uncle of the late Heath Ledger was popped Wednesday for stealing tractors -- and a tomahawk -- in Heath's hometown of Perth, Australia.

Haydn Ledger -- brother of Heath's dad Kim -- was charged with receiving stolen goods when three bobcat tractors worth over $100K were found at his office. They'd been stolen from a building site and a contractor's yard.

Earlier this year, Uncle Haydn accused Heath's dad of mismanaging his late son's trust fund, a claim which Kim Ledger denied. Heath's "The Dark Knight" premieres today.

Whatever    

I'm still trying to understand why family members "think" that they have a so-called right to anyone's estate just because they are family. The only person who has the right to any of his estate and fortune would and should be his daughter. Its just sad that once again, it proves that people only care about one thing - MONEY.
