Talk about crazy! Police have arrested a Pennsylvania man who they say stole two hand-held video game systems and three games from the casket of a teen who was killed in a Christmas Day SUV crash. ?
State police say they got an anonymous tip that enabled them to arrest 37-year-old Jody Lynn Bennett, of Mentcle, on Wednesday. He was unable to post $15,000 bond and was jailed after his arraignment on charges including theft, abuse of a corpse, and intentional desecration of a venerated object.
Police say Bennett grabbed a Game Boy, a Game Boy Light and three games from the casket of 17-year-old Bradley McCombs during a viewing Monday night at a funeral home in Montgomery Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Bennett’s mother, Sharon, says her son has a drug problem. She apologized for his actions and says he will make a formal apology to the family and also donate his xbox 360 to charity.
