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

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
