Family members say a Tennessee man accused of stealing a box of human ashes thought the remains were cocaine.

William "Billy" Cantrell, 28, is being held on an aggravated burglary charge.

According to police, he stole an Xbox and the ashes from a neighbor's house and fled to his grandmother's home in East Nashville.

"William thought it was drugs. He thought he'd done found him a box of cocaine, is what he thought," Cantrell's grandmother, Wanda Allen, told Nashville TV station WTVF.

The good news?

Allen doesn't think her grandson actually snorted the ashes.
