Three people have been charged in connection with a rash of thefts of bronze urns at two Kansas City, Kan., cemeteries.

Corey L. Walker, 25; Chante Nicole Plummer, 30; and Jason D. Snyder, 33, each are charged in Wyandotte County District Court with felony theft.

Last month, operators of Maple Hill Cemetery said someone had taken several hundred of the urns from graves. Chapel Hill Cemetery also is listed in court documents as reporting stolen urns.

The charges against the three involve alleged thefts between December and mid-April.

Plummer recently was put on probation after pleading guilty to stealing vacuum cleaners from a Target store, according to court records in Johnson County.

As a condition of her probation, she was ordered to have no contact with Walker, according to the records.

Walker also has another pending theft case filed earlier this year in Wyandotte County, according to court records.

All three were booked into the Wyandotte County jail on Thursday, and bond for each is set at $20,000.
