OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- A man who police say stole dozens of bronze vases from an Ogden cemetery has pleaded guilty.

Police say Angel Luna-Gonzalez stole 58 vases from Myers Evergreen Memorial Park. Eight of those vases came from one family's grave site and at one point he stole two vases from the family in about an hour.

Police have recovered 32 of the vases from a scrap pile at a recycler.

Luna pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree felony theft as part of a plea bargain in which prosecutors agreed not to file additional charges.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 27.
