Colquitt County-  Thieves took an unusual item when they broke into a Colquitt County home two weeks ago. Now the woman who was burglarized is asking for her late husband's ashes to be returned. Bettielou Welch was out of town when her home was burglarized. 

The crooks stole numerous shotguns, amplifiers, a bass guitar, and her late husband's ashes.  They were in a white box near a piano as Ed Heardie requested before his death in July 1999.

"It clearly states Hearts Mortuary on there, they took my late husbands ashes, I mean I can replace the other stuff, it's going to be difficult, the emotional attachment won't be there but you can't replace the ashes," Bettielou Welch, Victim. 

The Colquitt County Sheriff's Office recovered several items from local pawn shops.  Welch fears the burglars may have tossed out the ashes.
