Cremated ashes were stolen during a home burglary

The family is now pleading for the ashes to be returned

CUERO, Texas – Last week, someone broke into a Cuero family home. The home was vacant at the time. The crime happened sometime last Wednesday to Thursday morning.

The thieves took a small cardboard box containing the ashes of a family member. The family was waiting on an urn and a headstone to arrive to have a burial ceremony. The family says other random items were stolen like crystal glassware, a guitar, a trumpet and a sentry safe. Although, televisions and speakers were left behind.

Now the family is pleading with whoever took the ashes to return them back to either the home or the Cuero Police Department.
