TEMPE, Ariz. – An urn was taken during a burglary and police are trying to identify two men they say are persons of interest.

On June 2, an unidentified suspect or suspects entered a home in the 1900 block of East Fairmont Drive in Tempe and stole jewelry, credit cards and an urn containing the victim's deceased husband's ashes.

The wooden urn had gold trim and the name Grant M. Dory on it.

A short time later, the victim's credit cards were used approximately 30 times in Tempe and Mesa.

Detectives have developed two men as persons of interest. The first is described as a white male, 45 to 55 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, balding on top with long gray hair in the back, and wearing a light-colored T-shirt.
