ATLANTA  — Atlanta police say they’ve apprehended a suspect accused of stealing a hearse with a body inside. The vehicle — and the body — both were recovered a short time later.

HearseAtlanta police Officer Ralph Woolfolk said authorities believe the hearse was taken Sunday morning outside Grady Memorial Hospital in the city’s downtown area. WSB-TV reports that it appears the driver drove through the gates of the hospital morgue.

Woolfolk tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the suspect abandoned the hearse a few blocks from Grady, then stole a gold Ford Explorer and drove off in that vehicle.

Police say they recovered the hearse, with the body still inside, on Auburn Avenue.

Woolfolk tells WXIA-TV that a suspect was in custody. Police haven’t identified the suspect, and had no further details on the arrest.
