Infant's ashes taken in home break-in

Posted: Updated:

A disturbing burglary in Monkton.

Police say someone kicked in the door to a home on Pond Road and stole several items including a box of jewelry. Police say the residents are traumatized because the burglar also stole a pewter urn that contained the ashes of their infant child. The urn is only about 4 inches tall with a screw-on cap. It has black stripes on it. The bag of ashes inside is smaller than a golf ball.

Anyone with information is asked to call Vermont State Police at 802-388-4919. You can also submit tips anonymously online at www.vtips.info or by texting "CRIMES" (274637) to Keyword: VTIPS.
