(Newser) – Police raiding a suspected meth lab 70 miles east of Los Angeles found the drugs and guns they were expecting, plus a surprise: Two dozen stolen granite tombstones. Police believe the home's residents ripped the tombstones from the ground in several local cemeteries, but they have no idea why. "There's no monetary value to these," a police spokeswoman tells Reuters. "They are made out of stone, so they are very, very heavy."
