Stolen Items from St. Anne’s Cemetery:

Following on from last week’s item about the theft of items from St. Anne’s Cemetery, Navan Gardaí have posted the following:  Do you own these property items recovered by Navan Gardaí? There are two dozen Flower pots of various sizes and colours. The items recovered appears to include geraniums, hydrangeas, orchids, and a number of other flowers. The items in question were recovered by Navan Gardaí, who are keen to hand them back to their original owners. Anyone with any information about where they might have come from is encouraged to contact Navan Gardaí station on 0469021445. Maybe some of the items recovered belong to the families that had items stolen from their graves in St. Annes?

The Community Text Alert Group have erected a sign in the Cemetery and anyone noticing any suspicious activity there is asked to report it immediately. Those who have had items stolen are asked to report the theft to the Gardaí.  It has been suggested that families that have valuable items on their plots should have them engraved with their family name or with the name of the deceased person in order to ensure that they cannot be sold on or used by others.
