Cash stolen from Day of the Dead shrines as man held at gunpoint

Stealing is bad, Mmmkay? But stealing from “Day of the Dead” shrines is worse because ghosts.

Myrtle Beach police are investigating a home intrusion and robbery.

Police were called to the 6600 block of Ocean Boulevard the night of April 19 at about 11:20 p.m.

According to the police report, the victim was sleeping when he was awakened by a loud noise and heard someone walking up the stairs.

The victim told police he went to see what the noise was when a black male pointed a gun at him, asked him to get on his knees and demanded money.

The suspect then grabbed cash from the victim’s Day of the Dead Virgin Mary skull shrines, which is how 99 percent of horror movies start, so there’s that.

The suspect then ran from the residence, and so now buckle up because, well, we all know what happens next!
