MONKTON — Vermont State Police are investigating a burglary that occurred Monday between 8:25 a.m. and 4:40 p.m., when someone had kicked open the north door of a Pond Road home in Monkton.
Among the many items stolen was a pewter urn approximately 2.5 inches high in the shape of an upside down tear drop. The urn has black stripes and contains the ashes of the victim’s deceased infant child.
Also missing is an oak jewelry box that is approximately six inches tall with two drawers, a flip-open top and three compartments. Inside the jewelry box are multiple pieces of jewelry, including an 18-inch herringbone necklace with matching earrings and a 14 karat gold mother’s ring with a red garnet stone.
