Anyone in Surrey lose an urn?

 

SURREY — Surrey Mounties are trying to locate the owner of a brown urn someone apparently left behind when they moved out of a residence in Whalley.

New tenants in the 12200-block of 100A Avenue turned the brown plastic container over to police on May 20th. It’s about 30 centimetres tall and has a white label with "Crematorium, Mary Breen" handwritten on it.

"Aside from the label there are no distinguishable marks on the urn," Cpl. Scotty Schumann said. "We’re hoping that someone will recognize the urn so we can return it to its owner."

Police ask anyone who knows who the owner is to contact Const. J. Kim at 604-599-0502, quoting file number 2015-69443.
