Thieves steal pendant containing grandfather’s ashes from vehicle

Police say a chain and pendant containing the ashes of an Abbotsford's woman's grandfather was stolen Sunday afternoon

Police are asking for the public’s help after thieves stole a pendant containing the victim’s grandfather’s ashes from a vehicle on Sunday.

Police say a woman called Sunday afternoon around 2:50 p.m. to report a break-in to her apartment’s underground parkade and her personal vehicle.

Several items were stolen, the most significant being a silver chain and pendant taken from the rear view mirror (see photos). That pendant contained a vial containing her grandfather’s ashes (see photo of similar vile).

“The victim is devastated by the loss,” police say. “The pendant would hold very little monetary value but it is of immense sentimental value to the victim and her family. She would obviously like to have the pendant returned.”

Anyone with information about this break-in and theft should contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225, text 222973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
