In their defense, they thought the urn was just a real fancy place to hold a jackpot of cocaine.
Brilliant, huh? This is your brain on drugs, kids!
In December, a woman's home in central Florida was ruthlessly robbed with the thieves making off with everything from jewelry to electronics to the cremated remains of her father and her two Great Danes. The latter seemed strange to both the woman and the police. That's until they met the sticky fingers.
Last week, five teenagers were arrest in connection with another robbery and were found to be the thieves of the urn. Upon questioning the group, investigators learned that they "mistook the ashes for either cocaine or heroin." They figured this out AFTER they snorted a bit of the pooches up their nose.
Ew! Gross! We can't imagine the taste in their mouth after that mistake! Disgusting!
When they realized what they took, they briefly discussed giving the ashes back to the woman, but opted instead to toss the urn in a lake, fearing they could be caught by the fingerprints on the container. Thankfully, the ashes were recovered and given back to the grief stricken woman.
Right now, the teens are sitting behind bars, probably being laughed at by the rest of the inmates.
We know we're laughing at them.
