The Us Police in California on Thursday recovered a black SUV that was stolen two hours earlier from outside a Pasadena church.
The Lincoln Navigator outfitted as a hearse was taken from outside the Saint Anthony Greek Orthodox Church on Rosemead Boulevard at around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, according to authorities.
“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 wrote on Twitter:
