LITTLE FALLS (WJON News) -- Nearly six years later dozens of vases and urns stolen from Morrison County cemeteries have been recovered from the bottom of a lake.

The Morrison County Sheriff's Office says in July of 2018 there were several reports of brass vases, granite urns, bronze vases and copper urns being stolen from cemeteries around Little Falls and Upsala. The vases and urns were attached to tombstones when the thefts happened.
