3 NJ Women Arrested For Stealing 380 Grave Markers, Flower Urns From Local Cemetery
“Three New Jersey women are behind bars for a crime that is becoming more and more common, according to police. Authorities say they stole brass markers from the graves of veterans at local cemeteries, and sold the stolen markers to a scrap yard.
Authorities tell Eyewitness News the suspects needed drug money.
“You need money that bad, you have to start desecrating a grave?” said Sgt. Bill Covert with the Cinnaminson Police Department.
Covert, who’s a veteran himself, said that he was floored to learn that someone would sink that low.”
