A Surrey woman can grieve in peace after RCMP arrested a man who made off with her husband’s ashes.
The 43-year-old allegedly broke into her vehicle on Wednesday and stole her purse, where she had put the urn holding her husband.
Police say the man was being watched because he was driving a stolen vehicle, and was wanted on outstanding warrants.
He was arrested just blocks away from the cemetery, on 72 Avenue near 146 Street.
Michael Grant John Pritchard faces six charges.
