Police say he stole the bronze markers and sold them.

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.
