KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla.-- A local man wants justice after his parents gravesite was disturbed.

Miles Kolbe is upset and angry. He wants his parents to rest in peace. Kolbe had a visit from the Clay County Sheriff' s Office about the brass vase at his parents gravesite being stolen. Police say it wasn't the only one. Seven of the markers were stolen from the Keystone Heights cemetery. Police say the suspect admitted to it and pawned the markers off for less than $100 at a scrap metal shop.

While Kolbe is upset, he realizes there isn't much that could've prevented the crime. There are no security cameras and it's hard to police a cemetery. He just hopes this is the last time someone disturbs those trying to rest in peace. "I'd tell him how sorry, dirty and low he is," said Kolbe.

The suspect is in jail. We've also learned the suspect was already out on bond from a separate burglary arrest.
