A graveyard caretaker filed a complaint with the police after several skeletons were stolen from his property, according to police reports in Puerto Rico.

San Juan Police said that cemetery vandals stole the bones of at least four mausoleums in the cemetery.

In a statement on Sunday, police said that whole skeletons were taken from two mausoleums and body parts were removed from two other graves in the cemetery, which is located in the southern city of Ponce.

Harold Normandia, a cemetery caretaker, told police that a total of six tombs had been broken into and vandalized. The Civil Cemetery worker discovered the vandalism on Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

Police have launched an investigation into the incident, but so far, no arrests have been made.
