A Mitchell man was charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into his parent's home and stealing his grandmother's ashes.

Jacob Stulken, 26, was arrested on Oct. 25 after he allegedly entered his parent's residence through the kitchen window and took an urn that contained his grandmother's ashes, court documents state.

According to court documents, Stulken damaged several items in the home and threw what appeared to be baking powder around the residence. When Stulken was arrested, police allegedly found the urn in his back pocket, along with two marijuana pipes and marijuana residue.

Stulken was charged with first-degree burglary, a Class 2 felony punishable upon conviction by up to 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine; possession of marijuana, a Class 1 misdemeanor punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class 2 misdemeanor punishable upon conviction by up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
