Police search for urn’s owner
Police have taken possession of an urn containing ashes that was dropped off as a donation to the Value Village Store on Wednesday (Feb. 23).
The urn had been left by an unknown donor the day before, said Langley RCMP spokesman Cpl. Holly Marks.
A search of police databases has not been successful in locating a reported theft of the urn, Marks said, adding that it’s possible the urn was not stolen.
However, Marks added, it’s not a typical donation to the Langley City thrift store.
“There is a possibility the urn has been mistakenly donated or is in fact stolen,” Marks said, adding that police would like to return the urn to the family whose loved one’s ashes are in it.
Anyone who can help is asked to call the Langley detachment at 604-532-3200.
