WATCH ABOVE: A London, Ontario family is shocked and confused after a video captured a woman stealing flowers from their mother’s grave. Kris Reyes spoke to the daughter who is desperately seeking help identifying
TORONTO — Police are asking the public for help in identifying a woman suspected of stealing several sentimental items from a grave at a cemetery in London, Ont.
London police said the suspect stole personal mementos and flowers planted by the grave in St. Peter’s Cemetery, at 806 Victoria St., over the past three months.
“Nothing really valuable that I know of, it’s just small little mementos and memorabilia type stuff. From the video, obviously she’s pulling the flowers right out that have been planted,” said Const. Alanna Hollywood.
“They haven’t had thefts from other graves in the area there so it’s just been the one that seems to be targeted.”
The suspect is described by police as white, in her 20’s, approximately 5’5″, with a slim build and dyed blonde hair with dark roots.
Hollywood said the family was upset over the incident and were hoping the public could help identify the suspect.
“Personally I haven’t seen anything like this,” said Hollywood. “I’ve never seen a case where it’s actually been targeted like this.”
Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call the London Police Service at (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Information can also be sent in on-line anonymously to http://www.londoncrimestoppers.com.
