Sheriff's Office investigating possible grave robberies in Mecklenburg

Posted: Updated:
MECKLENBURG, VA (WWBT) -

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office is looking into several possible grave robberies in the area.

A grave in the Canaan Cemetery, south of the Mecklenburg-Brunswick Regional Airport, was found to be disturbed Monday night. The dirt was loose, so authorities uncovered the casket and determined that someone had tampered it.

On Tuesday, another grave in the RZUA cemetery was also found dug up.

The Sheriff's Office is looking to see if there is a connection between the two cases.
