December 10, 2019

Two Georgia cemetery employees have been charged with stealing dozens of bronze memorial markers and selling them at a recycling center for about $300,000.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office responded to complaints that markers were disappearing from Meadowbrook Memory Gardens in Villa Rica, according to a statement released by the agency on Dec. 4. Cemetery officials told deputies they thought two employees were responsible for stealing more than 70 memorials valued at about $4,500 each.

Deputies arrested Brent Thomas McAdams and Anna Millwood after conducting a search at their home in Haralson County and discovering stolen items and drugs inside, the statement said. The two workers are charged with felony theft by taking, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

Villa Rica is about 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Atlanta.
