Woman Caught On Camera Stealing Decorations From Child's Grave

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND COUNTY, OH -

A twisted thief in Ohio is stealing decorations from the grave of a young child in Richland County and police are upping surveillance to catch the crook.

Items left by the parents of little Hayden Sheridan who died at the age of 14 months have been repeatedly stolen for several years.

Police are stepping in setting up surveillance cameras equipped with night vision and motion sensors perched from trees over the gravesite. Police say they are closer than ever to catching the suspect.

Last weekend the image of a middle aged white woman in a white t-shirt was caught stealing a stuffed animal.

At around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, a large stuffed duck was placed at the grave. Video was captured showing a woman walking away with the toy around 1:30 p.m.

According to Detective Jon Sigler, who has been working on the case for two years, the person in the video may not be responsible for all of the thefts that occurred at Tank’s grave.

Sigler explained that there is a picture of Tank on the grave marker, making it clear that it is the resting place of a baby.

The Ontario Police Department wrote on their Facebook page, “Most of all, the family just wants some assurance that they can leave a night light and a stuffed animal at their son’s grave without someone stealing it.”

“We want to get her identified and get the message out there that this is not acceptable," said Sigler.

Police are now trying to identify the woman.
