2 arrested in connection with stealing bronze doors from century-old tomb


PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - Two western Pennsylvania men have been arrested in connection with the alleged theft of bronze doors from a mausoleum.

Police say in a release Monday that 33-year-old Michael P. Lawrence and 30-year-old Travid Haun were arrested Friday and charged in the case.

A set of bronze doors worth more than $8,000 were allegedly stolen on Jan. 2 from a century-old tomb in a Pittsburgh cemetery, along with a stained-glass window.

Court documents show that both Lawrence and Haun are being held in the county jail, unable to post $5000 bond. They are charged with felony counts of vandalism, theft and receiving stolen property, and a misdemeanor count of theft of venerated objects.

No attorneys were listed for the men. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 31.
