(WLWT-TV, Cincinnati) — Police arrested a Harrison man accused of stealing items – including human remains – from a mortuary chapel where he worked.

Officers said 26-year-old Alan Smith stole downspouts, an air conditioner, copper wiring and about 20 bronze urns Thursday from Hillside Chapel in Clifton.

“What’s the sickest you’ve ever been, and your stomach is rolling the next morning? You get my drift? My stomach’s been rolling ever since I found this,” said Hillside Chapel owner Don Catchen.
