Rossendale Borough Council and the Police are appealing for information after stone was pinched from Whitworth Memorial Gardens on Sunday 3rd of July 2016.
Around 45 stones were taken by thieves from the gardens and the Council is now having to look at replacing the costly stone.
Rossendale Council’s Head of Operations, Paul McHenry, said;
“This is a terrible crime, not only has it left the area looking a mess for the community it is also costly to replace such stone from the public purse.”
Theft of stone is a serious crime and this incident is being treated as such.
