DERBY — Local veterans are appealing to area scrap metal dealers in Connecticut and beyond with the hopes that three stolen bronze plaques honoring WWII hero Frank P. Witek, a Medal of Honor recipient, may turn up.
The plaques, with two of them weighing about 100 pounds each, were stolen from Witek Memorial Park on Academy Hill Road earlier this week. Lt. Sal Frosceno on Wednesday said police have no leads at this point, but an investigation is ongoing.
