Urn with ashes donated to Va. thrift shop

By NBC 4
Washington Post editors

The Pennywise Thrift Store in Vienna received an usual donation recently, NBC 4 reports.

Included with the china and the tattered fur coat left in bags on the shop's front porch was a large blue-and-white Oriental vase. But the vase wasn't empty: It was full of ashes.

"It was probably accidental," Vienna Police Department Officer Bill Murray said. "It could have come from an estate sale or abandoned home or something like that."

Police said no crime has been committed and gave the urn back to the church, which owns the thrift store.
