Dorset Police are asking residents to help find owner of memorial stones

The two memorial-style stones, that are believed to have been stolen, were discovered in a property in Bournemouth, not far from Swanage.

These heart-shaped grey stones with engraved paw prints, were recovered from the property on Monday 30th November 2020.

The police have so far failed to reunite them with their owner, and have now released an image in an effort to locate them. 

How to contact the police

Police Constable Ben Aldous, of Dorset Police, said: 

“We are keen to identify the owners of these stones and I am issuing these images in the hope that they can be traced.

“I would urge anyone who recognises them to please contact us.”

Anyone with information about the stones should contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or call 101 with incident number 55200189662.

You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously at Crimestoppers-uk.org or 0800 555 111.
