Teens Commit Crime-mation.
From the smoking gun:
"A trio of teenage burglars who stole cash, jewelry, electronics, and prescription drugs from a Missouri residence also thought they got away with a stash of cocaine they found in a wooden box, only to later discover that the powder was actually the cremated remains of the homeowner’s father, police report".
Devin Gesell, 17, (pictured ) admitted he and two accomplices, ages 15 and 16, broke into a St. Peters, Missouri home. Gesell was the lookout as the teenagers stole jewelry, prescription drugs, video games, $825 in cash and the remains of the homeowner's father. Gesell told police they discarded the ashes when they realized after tasting the cremains, it was not cocaine.
One would think that this story was bizarre enough, but now there is an added twist.
According to riverfronttimes.com, the three were acquaintances of their victim, and they allegedly planned the caper after seeing a Facebook post announcing that the family was going out of town.
But wait, it gets better.
The homeowner says the two unnamed teenagers are relatives, and the ashes were the cremains of their own grandfather.
Sadly, the ashes can never be recovered.
