5 Teens Accused of Stealing, Sniffing Ashes

Ocala, FL (AP) - Authorities say five teenagers in north central
Florida are accused of stealing and sniffing the cremated remains
of a man and two dogs.

Marion County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jenifer Lowe said Friday
that the teens broke into a house and stole the remains and some
electronics in December. They were arrested on Tuesday.

Lowe said the teens told authorities they had thought the ashes
might be drugs and once they realized they weren't, they threw them
in a lake. Authorities recovered two wooden boxes with ashes from
the lake, while the third vessel was also recovered at another
location.

    From the high amount of burglarlies and theft of just about anything not bolted down, and in some cases secured, Marion County has got to be one of if not the most "clean" communities in Florida.
