Urn Returned

On September 2, 2017 the Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) began an investigation into the theft on an urn from inside a residence on Garden Street in the City of Pembroke. The urn was stolen sometime between 0800am and 100pm on September 2, 2017 while an estate/garage sale was being held at the residence. The pink urn, which contained the ashes of a deceased person, features decorative designs and is approximately 2 to 3 inches in height.
