Two absolute winners who had stolen, among other things, an urn containing a deceased man’s ashes, snorted them thinking they were filled with cocaine.
The ashes were taken from a woman’s home in the central Florida town of Silver Springs Shores in December 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. Stupid Burglars sniff deceased’s ashes thinking it was a stash of coke.
Investigators learned what happened to the ashes after they arrested five teens in connection with another burglary attempt at a nearby home last week. 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 on Wednesday.
