Urn stolen in Warren burglary returned


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – An urn that was stolen during a burglary in Warren was returned.

A man who does not want to be identified said he saw the report on WKBN 27 First News about the urn that was stolen from a North Feederle Avenue home last Friday. He said he asked around the neighborhood and learned the identity of the teen who took it and he confronted the teen, who told the man the urn was in a wooded area behind the Trumbull Homes on the city’s southeast side.

The man retrieved the urn, which is a little scratched up, but otherwise in good condition.

No other items from the burglary were recovered, including a laptop, Wii, flat screen television and food.

Kayla Trumbull left home about 5 p.m. Friday and said when she returned home Saturday morning, she noticed her back door was kicked in and several items, including the urn containing the ashes of her father, were taken from the house.

In the WKBN 27 First News report, Trumbull pleaded for the return of her father’s ashes. She said she is very happy to have them back and is grateful to the man who helped recover the urn.

“I hugged him. I was so happy, I cried and hugged him and just wouldn’t let go,” Trumbull said.
