War Memorial Plaques Stolen In Another Town

Ansonia police say they assume that two plaques engraved with the names of war heroes were stolen because of the value of the copper and brass as scrap metal.  The plaques,  one for the Vietnam War and one for World War II, were reported missing from Woodbridge Avenue and Viselli Court on Thursday.

Police say it appears as if someone unscrewed the mounting bolts, removed the metal portion of the memorial, and fled the area.

Police ask that anyone with information about the theft call Ansonia detectives at (203) 735-1885.

Similar thefts have been reported in other towns recently, including both Derby and Shelton.   The plaques,  one for the Vietnam War and one for World War II, were reported missing from Woodbridge Avenue and Viselli Court on Thursday.

    These criminals deserve “Community Service”. They should be required to clean bed pans in VFW Hospitals six days a week for five years… or clean Marine latrines in Afghanistan seven days a week for six months!
