California police had to break up a break-in at a crematorium in Santa Cruz this week.
A member of the public called police after seeing two men trespassing at the Santa Cruz Memorial Park late on Monday night.
When the police arrived, they said that they found the men attempting to get into the crematorium.
Apparently wanted to take their friend’s remains off the cemetery grounds.
Police identified the two as David Sada of Scotts Valley, Calif., and Nicholas Canavarro of Redding, Calif.
The police said Sada was visibly drunk and Canavarro tried to kick in a locked door.
Police declined to name the deceased other than to say he lived in the area and had recently passed away.
Canavarro was booked on attempted burglary charges. Sada was booked on suspicion of public drunkenness.
It is unclear what they wanted to do with their deceased friend.
