A February sentencing has been scheduled for a Columbus man who police say stole ornamental vases and military veteran nameplates from graves at three local cemeteries.
Earlier this week 41-year-old Steven Bequette pleaded no contest to drug possession and to attempted theft. Sentencing is set for February 21.
A prosecutor says at least 40 families were victimized by the graveyard thefts. Police say a scrap metal yard worker said the yard bought more than 200 pounds of brass from Bequette last summer.
