New Mexico authorities say thieves stole an SUV pulling a U-Haul with a casket inside



Authorities in New Mexico say thieves stole an SUV and an attached U-Haul trailer with a casket inside.

Albuquerque police said the vehicle was stolen from a Residence Inn early Monday morning.

The casket inside the U-Haul contained the body of the victim's father-in-law. The U-Haul was located shortly after police began searching for a black 2005 Chevy Trailblazer with Oklahoma license plates.

Police said the deceased man's daughter and husband were on their way from Oklahoma to Kirtland, New Mexico, to bury him.

So far, no arrests have been made.
