OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- Thieves hit a cemetery in Oshkosh stealing dozens of bronze vases from gravestones.

Jackie Moehr noticed something missing when she visited her family's gravestones at Lake View Memorial Park Cemetery in Oshkosh.

"I noticed that my daughter's urn and my grandparents' urn was gone," she said.

The vases sit flat in the grave marker or they can be flipped to hold flowers.

""Number one you don't steal anyway, but you sure don't go out to a grave and take from the dead. You know, it… it hurts people," Moehr said.

The cemetery thinks the vases are being taken and melted down in order to sell the metal.

Oshkosh police are investigating.
