    A 41-year-old woman has been arrested following the theft of dozens of plaques from a Canterbury war memorial

    A 41-year-old woman has been arrested following the theft of dozens of plaques from a Canterbury war memorial


    The plaques from Springston Cemetery, on the outskirts of Christchurch, were reported missing to police 11 days ago.

    Police recovered 17 of them at the weekend - after they were sold to a scrap metal dealer.

    A woman was arrested yesterday after allegedly selling another 32 plaques to a second scrap dealer.

    She has been charged with theft and is due to appear in Christchurch District Court today.
