BRISTOL, Tenn., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Police in Tennessee said workers at a funeral home called 911 when they discovered two men sleeping in caskets in a storage area.

Investigators said the workers at Weaver's Funeral Home in Bristol discovered the men sleeping at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and the suspects fled through a window when they learned officers were on the way, the Bristol Herald Courier reported Wednesday.

Police said they arrested Barrett Lance Hartsock on charges of burglary and vandalism over $1,000. The second man, whose name is believed to be Lars, was last seen in the Cherry Street area, police said.

The funeral home said the men caused more than $9,000 in damage to the caskets.
