Thieves steal hearse -- with dead body still inside of it

If you're gonna steal a vehicle, you might wanna take just a few extra moments to check what's inside before you boost the ride.

Case in point: As KABC TV in Los Angeles reports, police are still searching for a Lincoln Navigator SUV stolen Wednesday night from outside of St. Anthony's Church in Pasadena, California.

What the thieves apparently didn't know was this particular Lincoln was being used as a hearse.  And the deceased was still inside of it.

As the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office summed it up in a tweet: "To the suspect(s) driving around in a Black Lincoln Navigator stolen from the 700 blk of Rosemead Bl just after 8PM today in [Pasadena]: Out of all the bad decisions you have made, at least make one good one & bring back the deceased person & casket inside the Navigator."

In other words: Keep the SUV -- we just want the dead body inside of it.

No word yet if the body has been recovered.
