Two grave sites belonging to Returned Servicemen have been vandalised, and their headstone plaques stolen in Waiuku.
Waiuku Police were notified by a member of the public this morning, Thursday 11 May, that the two sites at Waiuku Cemetery had been affected.
“To do this at a cemetery is horrible enough, but to do it to the grave sites of servicemen is disgusting,” says Sergeant Graeme Wood.
Police will be contacting scrap metal services in the area to see if anything is brought forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Waiuku Police on 09 236 5020, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
