(Newser) – One of the strangest police chases in a while is in the books, with a suspect in custody. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies recovered a stolen Lincoln Navigator Thursday morning following a freeway pursuit, reports ABC7. The odd part? The vehicle was doubling as a hearse, and it had been stolen from outside a Pasadena church on Wednesday evening—with a casket and corpse inside. Police recovered both the casket and the body after the chase. One unidentified suspect was in custody. Earlier, the sheriff's office had urged the thief to do the right thing: "Out of all the bad decisions you have made, at least make one good one," read a department tweet. (A similar thing happened in Mexico.)
