Two Intruders Caught Sleeping in Caskets
BRISTOL, Tenn. — This morning at 10:30 a.m. officers were dispatched to Weaver’s Funeral Home on a report of intruders inside the building.
Workers in the casket storage facility discovered two males asleep in caskets while they were working in the building.
When the employees told the intruders that they were calling the police they fled the area by jumping out a window. One of the subjects managed to escape. The other, Barrett Lance Hartsock, was caught and arrested.
Hartsock was charged with burglary and vandalism over $1,000.
The second intruder described as a white male, last seen in the area of Cherry St. At that time was shirtless. His name may be Lars and he may go by the nickname Sparks or Sparky.
There was more than $9,000 in damage done to the caskets the two were sleeping in.
