ANDERSON — A 53-year-old man has been charged with burglary and theft after the cremated remains of his ex-girlfriend’s parents were stolen from her apartment in central Indiana.

Urns containing the remains were taken Oct. 9 after a man was seen forcing his way into the apartment in Anderson, northeast of Indianapolis, according to the Muncie Star Press.

Police had been called there earlier in the day when the 50-year-old woman reported the tires on her vehicle were slashed.

Following the theft of the urns, the woman said she received a text message threatening that the remains would be “flushed.” She also told police that while in a relationship with him, her former boyfriend had threatened to destroy the urns.

An arrest warrant for the man was issued Nov. 9.
