ELKO, Nev. (AP) - A 20-year-old Elko man has been arrested after police say he stole the cremated remains of his girlfriend’s mother and buried them in a hole during a dispute.

Elko County jail officials say Collin Stewart was booked Thursday on suspicion of grand larceny. He remained there Friday morning on $10,000 bail.

Police Lt. Ty Trouten tells the Elko Daily Free Press (https://bit.ly/1hXTTDZ ) that Stewart and his girlfriend were in an argument Thursday when Stewart took a crystal vase with human remains and left the house.

Trouten says Stewart put the vase in a hole and covered it.

Police were able to find the vase and arrested Stewart.
