Brass rings stolen from cemetery in Sonoma

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Sonoma police are investigating a new case of vandalism at a local cemetery -- and it may have been sparked by the bad economy.

Investigators say about 40 brass rings - worth $50 apiece - were pried off crypts at the Sonoma Mountain cemetery on First Street West. There's a history of vandalism at the cemetery - usually following illegal partying. But, police believe in this case, the thieves were after the money they could get from selling the metal.
