Thefts from Graves in Yarm

Police are asking members of the public to be vigilant after two thefts from graves were reported two weekends running at Yarm Cemetery.

The first theft occurred when a set of fairy lights were taken from a grave over the weekend of Friday 26th February to Monday 29th February and the second theft took place when a seat cover was taken from a grave over the weekend of Friday 4th March to today, Monday 7th March.

The items were of sentimental value and officers are asking anyone with information regarding anyone acting suspiciously at the cemetery to contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
