CLINTON -- Police are investigating thefts from Syracuse and Clinton cemeteries.

Clinton Police Lt. Dave Valentine said the investigation began about a month ago. Officers have confiscated about 60 items taken from the two cemeteries in the past year.

People who had thefts and did not report them should call Clinton and Syracuse police departments, Valentine said.

Police are currently questioning a 38-year-old Clinton woman who they believe is the primary suspect.

Items recovered include ceramic angel figurines, shepherd hooks, wreaths, wind chimes and sensor lights.
