Car break-ins along beaches are on the rise.

Earlier this month, a woman returned to her car at Turtle Trail Beach Access to find a window smashed. The items stolen were her purse and urn containing her father’s ashes.

“I don’t care about my purse, but my dad’s ashes were in there,” Malorie Beth told Sebastain Daily. Beth is still offering a reward for her father’s urn.
