Woman's ashes misplaced, not taken, police say

A woman's ashes that were reported stolen last week were actually misplaced, Lexington police said Monday afternoon.

Three victims of a burglary at 239 Hedgewood Court Wednesday told police that someone had stolen the ashes of the grandmother to one of the residents, according to police records. They also reported a Vizio 37-inch TV missing.

The victims told police Monday that they had found the ashes in the home, Lexington Police Lt. Ron Compton said.
