LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) – Crest Tires in Lubbock posted an update Tuesday on its Facebook page.  The update came with a picture of a box and the message, “Update: these are human ashes.”

“We just got confirmation from a funeral home,” the tire shop said. “Please share so we can get these back to the rightful owner.”

The original post (which was also on Tuesday) said, “About a month ago, at the end of the day, we notice a strange box sitting on our counter in one of our stores we opened it up and it seemed to have ashes in the box.” 

“Our first thought is that they are the ashes of somebody’s loved one,” Crest Tires said. 

The tire shop staff hoped someone would come back to claim the ashes.  That didn’t happen.  So, now Crest Tires has taken to Facebook to see if anyone recognizes the box.

Anyone who recognizes the box can call 806-747-9196 or message Crest Tires on Facebook.  Ask for Jeni.
