Bronze stars that mark vets' graves stolen in Isanti County


CAMBRIDGE, Minn. (AP) — Investigators in Isanti (eye-SAN'-tee) County say the theft of 200 bronze star grave markers is a cold-hearted crime against those who served our country and their families.

Every Memorial Day, volunteers place U.S. flags in the bronze markers in honor of the departed veterans. The volunteers discovered the missing markers at three cemeteries in the county.
