LONGMONT, Colo. -- A Colorado embalmer is facing fraud charges for allegedly removing gold crowns and dental fillings from corpses and cremated remains.

A Boulder County grand jury indicted 43-year-old Adrian Kline of Brighton on charges of providing false information to a pawn broker and providing false information to a secondhand dealer.

According to the Longmont Times-Call ( http://bit.ly/wmnxJz ), pawn brokers noticed that he was pawning dental gold repeatedly and called police.

One broker said Kline told her that gold teeth were normally thrown away at mortuaries and he was selling them to raise money for needy children.

Police found a copy of Kline's driver's license with a bag holding about 20 gold teeth at one shop. They say Kline, who worked alone at night, visited pawn shops dozens of times over three years.
