LENOIR, N.C. — Police are investigating after discovering that $40,000 worth of brass vases used to hold flowers were stolen from a local cemetery in Lenoir.

Workers at the Blue Ridge Memorial Park discovered the thefts Monday morning. A total of 138 vases were taken, according to WSOC.

The vases reportedly cost $300 each, but the value of the brass melted down is just over $6 at a scrap yard.

The total cost to replace the vases is valued at more than $40,000.

Investigators said they have already been in contact with local scrap years to be on the lookout for the vases.

    “Investigators said they have already been in contact with local scrap years to be on the lookout for the vases.”

    I don’t know what a “scrap year” is but I hope they get in touch with the scrap yards too.

    Scum everywhere. How disgusting to steal from a cemetery. Hope they catch them. $40,00 will that be a felony?
