Burglars with a Conscience

A news article from a Florida Newspaper:

When Nathan Radlich's house was burgled, thieves left his TV, his VCR, and his watch. What they did take was a "white cardboard box filled with grayish-white powder."

A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said, "It looked similar to cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit it big."

Then Nathan stood in front of the TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars: "Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago."

The next morning the bullet-riddled corpse of a drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep.

The cardboard box was there too; half of Gertrude's ashes remained.

And there was a note: "Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day."
