Ontario Man Serving Time for Stealing Urns
An Ontario man has been sentenced to nearly three months in prison for stealing urns that hold the remains of the deceased.
The urns were stolen from various cemeteries in the Sarnia area.
Bjay William Ravenhorst did not set off any warning bells with the first scrap dealer he sold them to, but the second dealer became quite alarmed. He called the police and Ravenhorst was arrested for the crime.
Ravenhorst was also charged with theft of power tools and morphine. He was found in violation of previous court orders as well. It is unfortunate for the 33-year-old man that inmates in the local jail frown deeply upon such an invasion.
It was requested that Ravenhorst serve his time in protective custody so that the other inmates do not attack him.
Ravenhorst was granted weekend custody so that he would be able to continue working. He had already served 27 days during the presentencing phase. That time will be counted towards his overall jail time.
