Bronze Plaques Stolen from Kids Summer Camp
Police in Oneida County are searching for leads after two bronze plaques were reported stolen from monuments at the Masonic Home Camp in Woodgate this weekend.
Two maintenance workers from the camp discovered the plaques missing on Friday, according to Sheriff Rob Maciol. He says that it’s not known how long the plaques have actually been missing from the cobblestone monument.
The plaques were placed on a coblestone monument along with a flagpole. One of the plaques was inscribed with “Flag Pole Corner” and had additional wording underneath it. The second plaque was inscribed with, “In Memory of Dr. Willis F. Ford.”
The value of the plaques is unknown. Scrap bronze values are based on the price of the commodities that make it up, mostly copper and some tin.
Boonville Police had a similar report of a bronze memorial plaque stolen from a cemetary in the Village last month.
Anyone with information regarding the stolen plaques are asked to contact Deputy Neil Larrivey at 315-765-2712. All calls will be kept confidential.
