A Glendale police car became an unlikely hearse Tuesday night when officers hauled away an empty coffin that had been dumped on a neighborhood sidewalk, officials said.
The sight of a coffin strapped to the trunk of a patrol car turned heads as it headed down Wilson Avenue and Concord Street.
"We will make sure it is not stolen from a mortuary," police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said in an e-mail. "If no one claims it, it will go to auction or be donated."
