Suspected burglar crushed to death by 900-pound safe: police


FILE: A suspected burglar was crushed by a 900-pound safe during an alleged heist. (NSW Police)
A suspected burglar was found crushed to death by a 900-pound safe in an Indiana home this week, local authorities said.
The Marion Police Department said they received a call on Tuesday from a man named George Hollingsworth who believed his garage was broken into. Hollingsworth told police that the door frame was damaged and the garage was so cluttered that he couldn't tell what was stolen, according to a press release.

While cleaning out the garage on Wednesday to see what might have been stolen, Hollingsworth found a body underneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had evidently fallen over, Deputy Chief Stephen D. Dorsey said.

“My mind couldn’t comprehend it,” Hollingsworth told Indianapolis' FOX 59. "I would have rather seen him steal stuff and get out than die like that. What a horrible way to die."

The Marion Fire Department helped Hollingsworth lift the safe and remove the body, according to police. Police identified the failed burglar as 28-year-old Jeremiah A. Disney, of Marion after an autopsy on Thursday. An investigation is ongoing.
 
When the crook got justice I wonder if the safe squeezed a puddle of meth out of him?
I love a happy ending. I hope the home owner has a pressure washer.

Dropping a 900 lb safe on a burglar is not a good security plan. Satisfying, but not easy to employ.
 
Thinking back on this story kinda reminds me of a time way back in the early 1960's when my Daddy told us about a man that was found dead in Clark's Hill Lake that had over 100 pounds of log chains all wrapped around him when they finally recovered his body out of the water. The Sheriff just said, "Dang, that is just like a thief...trying to steal more than he can tote" !!!!!! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Thankfully, the Sheriff and my Daddy were close life-long friends.
