ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police are investigating the theft of 30 American Legion grave markers from a cemetery.

The police say in a news release that the thefts occurred sometime between Saturday and Tuesday morning at the Rosebank Cemetery in Calvert in Cecil County. A caretaker of the cemetery reported the thefts this morning after noticing they were missing from the grave sites.

The markers hold a miniature American flag and mark the graves of U.S. service members.
