MODESTO (CBS/AP) — Dozens of bronze plaques have been pried off a memorial wall at a Modesto church.

The small plaques, which featured names of deceased parishioners as well as dates of birth and death, were taken late Saturday or early Sunday from a garden at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Modesto.

They were apparently taken by a metal thief.

The plaques would be worth only a few dollars each.

Detectives who specialize in metal theft have been working with Stanislaus County recyclers in an effort to find thieves.
