A black Lincoln Navigator with a casket and body inside was stolen Wednesday evening near a church in an unincorporated area between Arcadia and Pasadena.
The hearse was reported stolen about 8:05 p.m. from the 700 block of Rosemead Boulevard, near St. Anthony Greek Orthodox Church, according to Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
NBC4 reported the keys to the Navigator were left in the ignition.
Deputies are actively searching for the hearse, which was driven from the scene in an unknown direction, Navarro-Suarez said. The vehicle’s license plate number is 7ZDG618.
“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 tweeted.
