Didsbury RCMP - Theft Of Family Heirlooms & Urn

Didsbury RCMP are appealing for the return of some priceless family heirlooms. Those heirlooms include an urn containing ashes.

On Thursday, October 12th between 8:30am and 1:30pm police say unknown suspects forced entry to a home on Range Road 35 in the Dogpound Area west of Didsbury.
 
Once inside, numerous items were stolen. Among those family heirlooms were two gold rings and a small red wooden urn which contained the ashes of the home owner's deceased husband, according to Didsbury RCMP.
 
Also stolen was a black 2001 Chevrolet S10 truck with Alberta licence plate BSR2779.
 
Staff-Sergeant Chad Fournier says "Crimes like this really tug at your heartstrings. We think that urn was taken by someone who did not realize what it was. To them, it is of no value at all - but to the family it is priceless. We hope these heirlooms can be returned to the family and welcome any assistance to do that."
 
Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Didsbury RCMP Detachment.
