Dozens of brass flower vases missing from South Boston

Posted: Updated:
Police in South Boston are looking into who took dozens of brass flower vases off grave sites.

Captain Brian Lovelace says families started noticing the vases were missing last weekend at Halifax Memorial Gardens off U.S. Highway 501. He estimates nearly 100 were taken.

Captain Lovelace believes the thieves may have been trying to sell them for scrap metal but local scrap yards haven't seen them.

There haven't been any arrests.

South Boston police say the Mecklenburg Sheriff's Office reports a similar crime at one of their cemeteries.
