Stark County Sheriff's deputies with a disturbing discovery after they arrested a burglary suspect who had broken into a house in East Canton Tuesday.
Stark County Sheriff George Maier tells AkronNewsNow " Something that was very disturbing to us, we found several brass markers, apparently removed from grave markers of military veterans."
Maier says the military grave markers were found inside a stolen car being driven by the suspect. 41-year old James Cefalo faces burglary and receiving stolen property charges. The Sheriff's Office will try to return the markers to the graves they were taken from.
Maier says these type of thefts are unfortunately a sign of the times with thieves stealing scrap metal and any of the rmetal objects they can redeem for cash.
