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

Gary Hostetter, of Carter Lake was given 20 to 60 months Monday. 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.
