Robert Jeffery Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson Mug Shots

Denver (Colorado) Police Department
Why do weird crimes almost always have weird mug shots?

The stranger the charge, the stranger the picture -- you never see a completely normal-looking person in these things.

In this case, these two Colorado men -- Robert Jeffery Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25 -- are accused of having their own version of "Weekend at Bernies," the film where two men drag a corpse around.

Police say Young and Rubinson drove around with the body of their dead friend, Jeffrey Jarret, used his ATM card to get $400 and spent the cash at bars and strip clubs.

The two are accused of abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.
