UPPER DARBY Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood keeps thinking he's seen it all. And then someone rips off a cemetery, and his whole worldview changes.
"I guess nothing's sacred anymore," Chitwood said. "It's sad that these family members made a monument for their loved ones, and some scumbags ruin it for money."
The "scumbags" Chitwood referred to stole four heavy bronze doors from the front of two mausoleums in Arlington Cemetery, on State Road near Shadeland Avenue in Drexel Hill. They're valued at about $9,000 apiece, bringing the total take to somewhere in the $36,000 range.
