Man charged in theft of Griesbach commemorative plaques

A 45-year-old man has been charged in the theft of 18 memorial plaques taken in July from the Griesbach neighbourhood of Edmonton.

The man was arrested Tuesday and charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 and fraud under $5,000

The plaques, which honoured some of Canada’s most decorated soldiers and most famous battles, went missing in late July.

Griesbach is the site of a former Canadian Forces base.

The plaques were quickly recovered when a local scrap metal dealer recognized them. They were too damaged to be reused.
