Various cemeteries have had veteran grave markers taken recently. County officials believe they were stolen to melt down the bronze and brass for money.
This prompted the county and veterans' affairs offices to offer a $5,000 reward for a tip that leads to an arrest and conviction.
This has been an issue in Warren County several times over the last five years.
The county will replace the stolen markers with aluminum ones to hopefully deter thieves.
