Abstract: The setting is sheaves of modules over a commutative ring . It is shown that on completely metrizable spaces certain sheaves having mutually isomorphic finitely generated stalks are locally constant over a dense open subset. This is used to show that a locally compact metrizable space that is homologically locally connected with respect to a principal ideal domain is a homology manifold over provided it has finite cohomological dimension with respect to and, for any two points , the modules and are isomorphic and finitely generated.
