A 28-year-old Nashville man is in jail after he was caught earlier this month with a stolen urn filled with cremated remains and an Xbox, among other items.
The items were taken from a home on North Second Street in east Nashville during burglaries on July 10 on July 11.
According to an affidavit, William Cantrell was developed as a suspect after his grandmother found the urn at her home and called police.
She told investigators she believed her grandson had been breaking into area homes and stealing items.
Cantrell was charged with three counts theft, two counts aggravated burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was booked into the Metro jail on $18,000 bond.
According to an affidavit, Cantrell confessed to the burglaries once in custody.
Police said he gained entry into the victim's home by pushing in a window air conditioning unit.
The remains in the urn belong to the victim's mother.
