Urns Stolen from Merced Cemetery

Police are investigating the theft of several urns at a Merced cemetery
Police are investigating the theft of several urns from a cemetery last month.

About nine urns were stolen from an outside masoleum at the Evergreen Cemetery in Merced.

Investigators say it appears someone used an object to break into glass cases then took off with the brass urns, which still contained ashes of the deceased.

Police believe the thieves were hoping to cash in on the expensive metal.

The operator of the cemetery says the families of the loved ones whose ashes are now missing have all been notified.
