12:35pm Wednesday 16th May 2012 in News
THE River of Life memorial has been targeted by thieves for the second time in a matter of weeks.
Police are appealing for witnesses after the Bridge Street plaque - a tribute to victims of the IRA bomb in 1993 -was taken some time between April 20 and May 5.
PC Graham Davies, of Warrington Town Centre NPU, said: “This plaque forms part of a memorial and is of great significance to the town. It is upsetting for people to see that the plaque has been taken.
“We would urge anyone who knows the identity of the thief, or the whereabouts of the plaque, to contact us immediately.
“We would also appeal to anyone who may have been offered the plaque for sale to get in touch.”
The theft follows an incident on April 21 when Spartakas Grachauskas was arrested and charged with attempting to steal a different memorial.
He is due at Manchester Crown Court on May 23.
Anyone with information can call police on 101.
