Dumb, dumber and dumbest: Burglars snort ashes of a man and two dogs after they mistook them for coc

******************************************************************* It sounds like a scene from an inane comedy movie – three gormless burglars break into a house and snort what they believe to be drugs that turn out to be a dead man’s ashes.

However, it actually happened in the Florida town of Silver Springs Shores on December 15, according to a police report.

And the vacant stares in these police mugshots won’t do much to help the case of the accused.

Waldo Soroa, 19, Matrix Andaluz, 18, and Jose David Diaz Marrero, 19, have all been arrested on charges of burglary and grand theft.

They, along with two juveniles who cannot be named, allegedly stole the cremated remains of a man and two dogs, which they hoped might be cocaine, from a woman’s home.

As well as an urn containing the ashes of her father and another container with the ashes of her two Great Danes, they also took electronic equipment and jewelry, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday.

Investigators learned what happened to the ashes after they arrested five teens in connection with another burglary attempt at a nearby home last week. ‘The suspects mistook the ashes for either cocaine or heroin. It was soon discovered that the suspects snorted some of the ashes believing they were snorting cocaine,’ the sheriff’s report said.

Once they realized their error, the suspects discussed returning the remaining ashes but threw them in a lake instead because they thought their fingerprints were on the containers, sheriff’s spokesman Judge Cochran said.

Police divers were trying to recover the ashes. The suspects were jailed on numerous burglary and other charges.
