US Police: Man stole video game from boy's casket

Police have arrested a Pennsylvania man who they say stole a hand-held video game system and accessories from the casket of a teen who was killed in a Christmas Day crash.
State police say they got an anonymous tip that enabled them to arrest 37-year-old Jody Lynn Bennett on Wednesday. He was unable to post $15,000 bond and was jailed after his arraignment on charges including theft, abuse of a corpse, and intentional desecration of a venerated object.
Police say Bennett grabbed the items from the casket of 17-year-old Bradley McCombs during a viewing Monday night at a funeral home about 65 miles (104 kilometers) northeast of Pittsburgh.
Bennett's mother, Sharon, says her son has a drug problem. She apologized for his actions.
