In “Wait….Say What?” news, California Police have arrested 39-year-old Pete Jacob Lara for according to WVUE New Orleans, “picking through the mouths of the dead to steal gold teeth.” Yikes!
Prosecutors allege that Lara, an embalmer at a funeral home in Lancaster, California, was behind a string of thefts between June 25, 2012 and Oct. 28, 2013.
Lara allegedly stole and pawned teeth, a cremation urn box and medallions used to decorate urn boxes worth more than $1,000. He’s been charged with removal or possession of dental gold from human remains, grand theft by embezzlement and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.
Lara pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday and will return on Nov. 12.
