Police had to break up a break-in at a crematorium in Santa Cruz, Calif., this week.

Someone called police after seeing two men trespassing at Santa Cruz Memorial Park late Monday night.

When police arrived, they said they found the men attempting to get into the crematorium. They apparently were intent on taking their friend's remains off the cemetery grounds.

Police identified the two as David Sada of Scotts Valley, Calif., and Nicholas Canavarro of Redding, Calif.

The police said Sada was visibly drunk and Canavarro tried to kick in a locked door. 

Police declined to name the deceased other than to say he lived in the area and had recently passed away.

Canavarro was booked on attempted burglary charges. Sada was booked on suspicion of public drunkenness.
