Norwood Police Take Action After Multiple Thefts at Local Cemetery

Norwood Police have removed the remaining flag holders at Highland Cemetery after over three dozen holders were stolen from the graves.

Two piles of bronze holders were found by cemetery workers, but many more remain missing, Norwood Police said on their Facebook page.

Flag holders from six police and four firefighters were among the stolen. Veterans of WWI, WWII, and the Korean and Vietnam Wars are also laid to rest at the cemetery. The latest theft spree is the second in the last year and a half.

“We shall return them to the graves from which they were removed,’’ Norwood Police wrote on their Facebook Page. “We hope to return the flag holders to the cemetery during the fall or the spring.’’

The department is investigating the thefts.
