Polish police say thieves stole four Soviet-era tanks that were being used for target practice at an army test range in eastern Poland.

Each weighs more than 20 tons and police suspect they were stolen for scrap metal.

The T-34 and T-55 tanks were taken Tuesday night from the range at Jagodne.

Police spokeswoman Anna Smarzak said Thursday that three of the tanks were found at a private car park in Lublin. The other was found aboard a trailer en route to a steel mill. The tanks had been stripped of their engines long ago.

Smarzak says two suspects from the nearby city of Lublin were being detained and questioned.
