The Pitt County Sheriff's Office is investigating a stolen fence from an old family cemetery east of Ayden.

Doug Stokes says someone stole the iron fence surrounding the Edward Stokes Cemetery on Highway 102 Thursday night. He says there are 10 graves there, although no one has been buried there since the 1940s.

Stokes says the family graveyard doesn't look right without the fence, and isn't sure it will be replaced due to cost.
