    A Pennsylvania man is facing charges he stole more than a dozen bronze markers from the graves
    of veterans and sold them to a scrap yard.

    The Morning Call of Allentown reports 40-year-old Samuel Steffie is in custody charged with stealing 16 grave markers from a cemetery in July. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

    Authorities say Steffie took the bronze markers and sold them at a scrap yard in Orwigsburg.

    The Morning Call report says the Schuylkill Haven man was arraigned Sunday on charges of receiving
    stolen property and desecration of venerated objects.
