Police hunt for memorial plaque stolen from Niagara Falls park

When a thief steals a plaque from a Niagara Falls park, they end up with two sets of cops chasing them – the Niagara Police and the Niagara Parks Police.

While the first police force is much larger, both are now hunting for the person that somehow pried a memorial plaque from a rock sometime between April 14 and April 18.

The Niagara Parks Police were the first called to the scene at the Niagara Glen parking lot at 3050 Niagara River Parkway on April 18 at 5:10 pm where they were shown the missing plaque (shown above) describing the ‘Niagara River Recreation Trail,’ dated June 24, 1988.

Both forces believe it was stolen to be sold as ‘scrap’ metal.

Anyone who may have knowledge of this theft or the location of the plaque are asked to contact detectives by calling 905-688-4111, option 3, extension 1009677.
