Three teenagers broke into a house in St. Peters, Missouri back in November, and stole cash, jewelry, electronics, and a wooden box full of cocaine.

Well, they thought it was cocaine. They didn't realize it wasn't until they snorted some then tasted it.

It turns out the wooden box was filled with the cremated ashes of their victim's father. Hopefully he's haunting these dudes now.

The cops eventually tracked them down and just filed a bunch of felony charges against them. 17-year-old Devin Gesell is being tried as an adult the 16-year-old and 15-year-old guys who were with him are being tried as juveniles.
