CALGARY -- Police have charged three teenaged girls in relation to a car prowling that led to a young woman's ashes being dumped on a city street and washed away.

The woman's mother hopes the accused, if found guilty, will think about "personal space and belongings and how their actions may affect someone else."

In the early morning hours of Aug. 2, cops were called to southeast Calgary for reports of car prowlings.

Among the vehicles targeted was a truck belonging to Colleen Ransom, who lost her 19-year-old daughter Emma Ransom in a car crash near Nanton in 2009.

Nothing of monetary value was taken, but a pouch containing Emma's ashes, was dumped out on the street.
