BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — A Gosport man was arrested by state police after an investigation into the theft of items stolen from Monroe County cemeteries.

Over the past several months, troopers with the Indiana State Police received complaints about several memorial-related items stolen from cemeteries in Monroe County.
