HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been found guilty of stealing hundreds of bronze grave decorations from a Hagerstown cemetery.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports Bryan Lynn Fishack was found guilty by a judge on Thursday in Washington County District Court and sentenced to four years in state prison. The 27-year-old was charged with stealing 293 bronze vases valued at more than $40,000 from the Rest Haven Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Authorities say that after the thefts in October a woman contacted a Washington County Sheriff’s deputy and told them that Fishack had given her two crates filled with vases and asked her to sell them. A second woman later told investigators she too got vases from Fishack and sold them to a scrap metal company.
