Cemetery Crime Thursday - Nebraska

Iowan sentenced for stealing cemetery vases
 Aug 27, 2014

FREMONT, Neb. —A 53-year-old Iowa man has been imprisoned for stealing dozens of brass vases from an eastern Nebraska cemetery.

The Fremont Tribune says Gary Hostetter, of Carter Lake, Iowa, on Monday was given 20 to 60 months. He had pleaded no contest to a theft charge.

Dodge County Attorney Oliver Glass has said Hostetter admitted taking 45 vases from Memorial Cemetery in Fremont earlier this year.

Dodge County Jail records say Hostetter remained in custody on Tuesday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
