CEDAR CITY — The Cedar City Police Department is investigating several thefts and incidents of vandalism that occurred at the Cedar City Cemetery over the past few months.
On Monday, The Police Department asked for the public’s help in solving the crimes and identifying possible suspects.
“It is disheartening to know that there are those in our community who would steal small mementos from a grave or break flower vases and other similar items placed there by a grieving family,” police said in a media statement Monday. “Unfortunately, this is a sad reality.”
Despite increased police patrols and efforts to identify the perpetrators, the Police Department said it has no leads.
“We have a wonderful community, and we do not want to see this type of behavior continue,” the Police Department said in the statement.
Police are now asking for assistance from the community to help solve these crimes. Anyone with information about the incidents in question is asked to contact the Cedar City Police Department at 435-586-2956.
