INDIANAPOLIS -- Thieves who stole two concrete angels from an Indianapolis woman's grave returned them to the cemetery Thursday, one day after RTV6 broadcast the story of the theft.

The angels were taken from Juanita Hines' grave. Her husband, Rob Hines, said he visits her grave every other day and was sickened by the theft.

"She took care of me for almost 28 years," he said. "My home, my son and everything. This is my way to give back to her. It's sad people have to steal from us."

Hines posted on RTV6's Facebook wall Thursday that the angels had been returned to the cemetery.

WRTV 6 Thank you for the help in getting the word out about the Angels being stolen from my wife's grave, you'll be...

The identity of the thieves wasn't known, but Hines said he wasn't interested in prosecuting them – he just wanted the statues back.
