Moron of the Day Triple Header

Of course this story made Fark.com but without the anticipated Florida tag.

Mistaking the cremated remains of a man and two dogs for powdered drugs, a quintet of teenage burglars snorted the ashes after a break-in last month at a Florida residence, according to police.

That startling disclosure is contained in a Marion County Sheriff’s Office report, a copy of which you’ll find here. The January 18 report memorializes information received from a source–who appears to be one of the arrestees–who told deputies that the ashes “had been taken because the suspects mistook it for either cocaine or heroin.”Investigators learned from the source, whose name was redacted from the report, that the teen suspects “had snorted the ashes believing they were snorting cocaine.” At some point, however, the alleged burglars determined that the powdered substances were not drugs, but that they had stolen “the remains from the dogs and the victims father.”

SHEESH!
