Seeking Public Assistance - Stolen Ashes

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify and locate two women who may have information about the location of items stolen from a purse, including the ashes of the victim’s son who died six months ago.

Early on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, two women entered Henry’s Pub at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel at 2620 32 Avenue N.E., and took a purse not belonging to them. They left the pub and drove away in a silver, four-door car, possibly a 2008 or newer Mitsubishi Lancer.

At approximately 1:15 a.m., credit cards from the stolen purse were used at the 7-11 located at 7233 Ogden Road S.E., by two women. Police are hoping to identify the women who are believed to have information about where the contents of the stolen purse may have ended up.

CCTV photos of the women can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about this incident, or the identity of the women, is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers using any of the following methods:
