A black Lincoln navigator with a casket and body inside was stolen Wednesday evening from a church in unincorporated Pasadena.
The theft occurred about 7:45 p.m. in the 700 block of Rosemead Boulevard.
“Out of all the bad decisions you have made, at least make one good one & bring back the deceased person & casket inside the Navigator,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a tweet.

The Saint Anthony Greek Orthodox Church was holding a Trisagion ceremony for a member whose funeral is scheduled for Thursday, according to the man’s obituary.
