Thieves Snort a Line Of Dog
LONDON -- Cocaine-crazy thieves tried to snort powder they found in an English housewife's living room, not realizing it was the ashes of her dead dog, according to a British press report on Friday.
The burglars thought they had hit the jackpot when they saw the powder marked "Charlie" -- slang for cocaine -- in a dainty ceramic pot on pet-lover Dee Blyth's mantelpiece, said the report in The Sun.
But they were unaware the pot was an urn and the "drugs" really the remains of her beloved Newfoundland Charlie, who died in 1997.
A policeman called to investigate the break-in at Chadwell Heath fell about laughing when he saw the burglars had arranged the ashes in cocaine-style lines.
"I'd love to see their faces when these thieves realize," said Blyth.
"It was horrible knowing they were in my house, but the idea of them trying to get high on a dead dog certainly made me feel a bit better.
"I didn't realize the significance until the policeman started laughing.
