"Mother's Ashes Stolen From Parking Lot"

If you ever think about stopping to eat steaks in New Braunfels, and you have a family member's ashes in the car, you might want to consider bringing them with you into the restaurant.

From KSAT-12:

David Taylor's mother, Marguerite, passed away on Dec. 11, at the age of 86 and was cremated in preparation of a ceremony Wednesday evening.

But those plans changed as the family stopped for dinner.

While inside Ryan's Steakhouse, somebody picked the lock of the automobile where the ashes of Taylor's mother were in an urn on the floorboard and stole only the urn.

Without being too flippant, I wonder if that was a really nice urn. It just goes to show, people should hide their valuables when they leave them in the car.
