Suspects Nabbed in Cemetery Thefts


MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) – Justice was swift today in Machesney Park. Police were able to nab two men accused of stealing vases from a local cemetery less than an hour after the crime was reported.

They allegedly stole the vases from Sunset Memorial Gardens cemetery just after noon today. We don’t know how many they took, but they were caught just about 45 minutes later while attempting to scrap the metal vases at Paper Recovery Services, which is just minutes away from the cemetery. Investigators haven’t released the suspects’ identities.
