article imageFive teen burglars snort ashes from crime scene

By KJ Mullins     Jan 22, 2011 in Crime
Silver Springs - When five teens broke into a Silver Springs, Florida home on December 15, 2010 they took jewelry, electronic items and three urns containing the ashes of the victim's dead father and two dogs.
The American teens had thought the ashes were cocaine or heroin according to Marion County Sheriffs who interviewed them. When their try at the 'nose candy' didn't pan out they went to a friend who thought the ashes were cement mix. It was only when some of the suspects read a media report that they realized that they had snorted dog and human ashes.
The teens had thought about returning the ashes but decided it was too risky. They threw the ashes instead into a lake. Police investigators located two of the urns at the lake after an hour of their dive team's search on Thursday. One urn belonging to one of the dogs, a Great Dane, has yet to be recovered. That urn was not discarded in the lake said Sheriff Ed Dean.
“We are out here today searching the lake because we want to return the ashes to the victim. The items are important to her, so they are important to us. The best part of our job (as a property crimes detective) is finding the stolen property and returning it to the owner,” said Detective Greg Spicher. “Our job isn’t over when we arrest someone,” he added.
