The cremated remains of a young girl were stolen during a burglary of an Akron home, police said.
The ashes were discovered missing on Tuesday when a Safer Place resident returned to her home. The 28-year-old woman said she and her family had left the apartment on Monday after electricity service was canceled. When she arrived home Tuesday afternoon, she noticed a window was damaged and a vase containing the ashes was missing from an entertainment center in the living room, according to Akron police.
Police say other items were handled inside the apartment, but the vase was apparently the only item taken.
Anyone with information is asked to call Akron police at 330-375-2490.
