According to Dawe and a friend of his who he talked to in the years before his eventual arrest, he got drunk and saw the crypt was partially open, so he took something out of it.

His friend then suggested that he boil the bones to preserve them better, and he kept the skull up until his arrest a year and a half later. He was charged with possession of stolen items.

The All Saints Church took responsibility for the re-interment of the bones and the repair of the crypts they came from so no one would be tempted to snatch them again.
