Sometime over the weekend of April 3rd through the 6th someone stole approximately 8 brass flower vases from Forest Funeral Home on Pacific Avenue SE.  These were discovered missing from the headstones of graves by families while visiting.

This has happened in the past and some of the vases have been recovered at metal recyclers.  These vases obviously have more than monetary value to the families affected.

If you have any information on these, or any other crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
