Police have arrested a Pennsylvania man who they say stole a hand-held video game system and accessories from the casket of a teen who was killed in a Christmas Day SUV crash.

State police say they got an anonymous tip that enabled them to arrest 37-year-old Jody Lynn Bennett, of Mentcle, on Wednesday. He was unable to post $15,000 bond and was jailed after his arraignment on charges including theft, abuse of a corpse, and intentional desecration of a venerated object.

Police say Bennett grabbed the items from the casket of 17-year-old Bradley McCombs during a viewing Monday night at a funeral home in Montgomery Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Bennett's mother, Sharon, says her son has a drug problem. She apologized for his actions.
