CINNAMINSON, N.J. (CBS) 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.

That $1500 went straight to the friendly neighborhood meth dealer.
The scrap dealer, should have just made an excuse, stepped away and called the police at that time.
I was watching "American Picker" one night, and they had found an very,very old cross from a cemetery, can't remember if it had a name. They bought it because of course they could sell at a profit to some decorator, disgusting, and he thought it was cool. Don't watch them anymore
Anyway, I think there really should be a law on dealing in grave markers, just as Ivory tusks. There is no need in anyone owning these things.
The very old grave markers are beautiful and I love seeing them. What despicable people to steal these things.
During my time in the Coast Guard stationed up in Maine we would run across Buoy's missing their bells,and gongs. low life's would cut them off with a torch and then sell the brass or metal they were made of. that was back in the 60s I was aboard a Buoy tender then.
He was 15, lied about his age and enlisted in the Merchant Marines.....served about 6mths before they discharged him. But he did see action.
Ah...my plot to remove respect for the military is working. Next step is to cut funding. I’m sure these people will support that.
And that certainly seems to be the most appropriate penalty for this despicable crime.
Agreed. Wonder if the police were on the ball and got the perps before they cashed the check?
Twofer. provides amusement and eliminates a..holes from the population.
The only time I brought scrap to a dealer, they made a copy of my driver’s license, inspected and weighed the stuff (brass and copper), gave me a slip, and I fed that into an on-site ATM machine which doled out the cash. That was the only ATM I ever saw that had $100 bills in it.
So, yes, they do keep track of who brings them stuff.
power company employees work on energized lines all the time - just a matter of training.
>> “The scape yard that bought them is just as guilty and they are then ones that need to pay to replace each and everyone.” <<
As usual, you’re an idiot.
The scrap yard is who turned them in. They knowingly took a loss to do what was right.
I would love to make a donation to the scrapyard owner.
