Robbers Snort Stolen Cremated Ashes, Mistaken for Cocaine
Police said they will search Thursday for what is left of the cremated remains of a man and two dogs that robbers stole from a Florida house and then snorted after mistakenly thinking it was cocaine.
Members of the Marion County sheriff’s department dive team say they will search a lake in the area where they think the remainder of the ashes may have been dumped.
The robbery occurred in December in a home in the central Florida area of Silver Springs, the sheriff department said in a statement.
A robbery crew ransacked the home taking electronics, jewelry and the cremated ashes of the homeowner’s father and two Great Danes.
“During the investigation, detectives learned that the ashes were taken because 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,” a sheriff’s department statement said.
After learning that they had snorted the ashes of a dead man or dead dogs, the suspects discarded the rest of the ashes, authorities said.
Three teens and two juveniles were arrested in the case, the sheriff’s department said.
