NEW MADRID, MO (KFVS) -

The New Madrid Police Department has received complaints about stolen items missing from headstones, according to the department's Facebook page.

Police say they have a person of interest, but are still investigating.

According to police, they have recovered a few possible stolen items. Some of the things included solar lights, memorial vases and stone plaques.

Eddie Mae Sanders buried her sister at the cemetery in 2014.

She said she only has one thing to say to the person doing this:

“Please mam, please sir, please whatever don’t do it!" Sanders said. "If you violating this cemetery don’t do it! Or any other cemetery in New Madrid don’t do it, we’re better citizens than that!”

If you know any information about this case, contact the police department at 573-748-5901.
