COLONIE, N.Y. – Police are puzzling over what would motivate a father and son to haul off six tombstones from a monument company in suburban Albany. Town of Colonie Detective Lt. John Van Alstyne said he's not sure what kind of aftermarket there might be for the hefty granite grave-markers.
Police charged a 35-year-old man and his 19-year-old son with felony criminal possession of stolen property. They were sent to Albany County Jail without bail.
The men were arrested after police got a call around 1 a.m. Sunday about a suspicious truck at Stefanazzi & Spargo Granite Co. A traffic stop of the rented truck turned up the six monuments, which weigh 300 to 600 pounds each and are valued at $6,000.
