WATERFORD, Pa. (AP) – State police say someone stole headstones from a northwestern Pennsylvania cemetery – then placed them as road hazards on a nearby street.

Troopers in Erie County say several headstones were removed from Waterford Cemetery early Sunday.

Police know that because motorists discovered them in the middle of the street of Waterford Township, a small community just southeast of Erie, about 12:30 a.m. that day.

Troopers from the Lawrence Park barracks are hoping witnesses will help them find who moved the stones.
