DALTON, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a Dalton burglar made off
with some unusual loot -- a grandmother's cremated remains.

Police tell WSB in Atlanta that it happened on July 26 in an
apartment along Brady Drive. They say in addition to an urn
containing the remains, the burglars grabbed computer equipment,
cameras and cell phones. The remains were kept in a display case.

Dalton police are offering a $1,000 reward to any leads that may
recover the urn and its contents.
