NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Gravestones placed near fresh dirt on the courthouse lawn in North Platte marked the work of a prankster or pranksters.

Lincoln County workers have been filling low spots with fresh topsoil to level the lawn. The spots apparently looked like fresh graves, prompting someone to place gravestones after a storm Tuesday night. One spot had a plastic hand laid atop the dirt, and the nearby gravestone read, “Rest in pieces.”

Lincoln County facilities director Dan Manookin told The North Platte Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1FhvFox ) that he stopped his vehicle Wednesday morning and rolled down a window “to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing.”

He says he thought the prank was a hoot, enjoying the good laugh it provided.
