The RCMP in East Hants say the theft was reported Dec. 30 from a home in Upper Rawdon, about 60 kilometres north of Halifax.

The Mounties say the stolen urn contained the ashes of the homeowner’s late son, and a laptop, a television and jewelry were also taken.

A Facebook post today from the RCMP shows a photo of the urn, an ornate box that features a photo of the young man.
