Authorities have arrested a 44-year-old Bradenton man in connection with the theft of flower vases from a cemetery.
Jackie E. Clark is charged with grand theft.
According to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report, a recycling facility's employees called investigators after Clark attempted to sell vases that matched the descriptions of those stolen from the Skyway Memorial Gardens cemetery.
More than 70 vases valued at $375 each were stolen from the Palmetto cemetery in September.
