During a traffic stop, Wyoming police came across a bag of whitish powder they initially suspected to be "poor quality cocaine or methamphetamine." It actually turned out to be something else completely:
"After scrutinizing the powdery substance, questioning the two vehicle occupants and checking with the vehicle owner," who was not in the car, "it turned out that the small Baggie contained the cremated ashes of the vehicle owner's grandmother."
The vehicle's owner told police that she was "very close" to her deceased grandma and "she always keeps her nearby in the console," the release said.
State police said storing ashes in bags inside a car console is unusual, but not criminal. "It's a little different, you don't come across it everyday," said Sgt. Stephen Townsend.
