3 charged with stealing bronze urns from Kansas cemeteries

Charges have been filed against three people accused of stealing bronze urns from two cemeteries in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://j.mp/1ZuczQW) operators of Maple Hill Cemetery said someone had taken several hundred of the urns from graves. Chapel Hill Cemetery also is listed in court documents as reporting stolen urns.

The charges against the two men and a woman involve alleged thefts between December and mid-April.

All three were booked into the Wyandotte County jail on Thursday, and bond for each is set at $20,000.

It’s unclear if the defendants have lawyers.
