Yup, I knew this was going to be from Florida:
(Reuters) – 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.
According to the story, apparently once they realized that the stuff wasn’t heroin or cocaine, they thought about returning the ashes to the victim, but dumped it instead. Brilliant — yet another charge of illegally disposing human remains to go with the other charges.
I have an idea. Let’s go do some graffiti in broad daylight. Even better, let’s do it to a building where a group of police officers are taking a class on how to conduct foot pursuits.
Over 100 sheriff’s deputies and police officers were attending a law enforcement training class when they saw a 22-year old man quickly etch the glass door that leads directly into a City of Commerce meeting room. As Vasquez began to open the door to etch the inside, he looked shocked to see dozens of deputies and officers running directly towards him. He turned and ran down the sidewalk as at least 40 deputies and officers crammed through the doorway at the City of Commerce Aquatic Center to go after him.
A bit dim, says I.

Frank Oynhausen set up his “Sweet Lord” chocolate Jesus-making business saying he wanted to restore some traditional religious values to Christmas in Germany.
But the German Protestant Church criticized the idea as “tasteless” and the Roman Catholic Church was not amused.
