STOCKTON (CBS13) – The stolen car and urn containing the ashes of a local man’s late wife have been returned.
Melvin Hayes’ car was stolen Thursday at a car wash possibly by a woman posing as an employee. But it was the urn containing his wife Annamarie’s remains in the car that really upset Hayes.
“Today was the day I was burying my wife,” he said on Thursday.
Hayes says a woman pretending to work at the car wash befriending him before stealing his car. When he went to see why his car wasn’t done yet, he was told that his “girlfriend” took it.
On Saturday, Stockton port police stopped Danielle Dorsey, 32, for a traffic violation and found the vehicle she was driving was Hayes’. Dorsey and passenger, Antwanne Batten, 33, were arrested and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on charges of auto theft and possession of stolen property.
Police returned the vehicle to Hayes who found the urn, with the ashes still inside, in the car.
The Hayes had been married for 48 years.
