Thieves Make Off With Mausoleum Doors

Posted: Updated:

A Pittsburgh cemetery is now missing a set of century old bronze doors valued at more than $8000.   

The doors and a stained glass window were discovered missing Thursday from a mausoleum at the Union Dale Cemetery.  

The theft was reported by the cemetery superintendent. He told investigators he doesn't believe the doors are engraved with the family's name. 

Authorities say the 1904 granite mausoleum is not maintained by relatives, so the cemetery owns the property.  Police say two sets of footprints were found in the snow coming from the rear of the mausoleum.
