Burglars snort cremated man’s ashes

MIAMI - Burglars snorted the cremated remains of a man and two dogs in the mistaken belief that they had stolen illegal drugs, Florida sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday.

:wtf:

The ashes were taken from a woman’s home in the central Florida town of Silver Springs Shores on Dec. 15. The thieves took an urn containing the ashes of her father and another container with the ashes of her two Great Danes, along with electronic equipment and jewelry, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators learned what happened to the ashes after they arrested five teens in connection with another burglary attempt at a nearby home last week.

“The suspects mistook the ashes for either cocaine or heroin. It was soon discovered that the suspects snorted some of the ashes believing they were snorting cocaine,” the sheriff’s report said.

:lolsign:

Once they realized their error, the suspects discussed returning the remaining ashes but threw them in a lake instead because they thought their fingerprints were on the containers, sheriff’s spokesman Judge Cochran said.

:humm:

Police divers were trying to recover the ashes. The suspects were jailed on numerous burglary and other charges.

OMG I am still laughing about this one... I told the guys at work about it and they all agree they've never heard a funnier news story. So what... you guys don't have anything to say about it? I'm surprised!

That is pretty hilarious...

it reminded me of this bit from today's local newspaper...

read the "Thieves warned" bit...

only in Canada would the police care enough to "help" thieves...
