Call for witnesses - Criminal damage - Palmerston

Police

Northern Territory Police are calling for witnesses after the Palmerston War Memorial was damaged overnight.

CCTV captured images just after midnight of an unknown person causing damage to two silhouette statues at the memorial. The offender was wearing dark coloured clothing and accompanied by an unknown accomplice wearing a white coloured t-shirt. 

Acting Senior Sergeant Rob Overall said, “Damaging a war memorial is not acceptable at any time, but to do it on the approach to ANZAC Day is unthinkable.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information is urged to contact Police on 131 444 or via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Please quote reference number 9665087.
