The Concord Police Department is looking for suspects involved in the theft of two Black Lives Matter signs at a church over the weekend.
On Sunday, at about 4 p.m. a police officer responded to the First Parish Church at 20 Lexington Rd. after receiving a report of the signs being stolen from the front entrance of the location, according to police.
Upon arriving, the manager of the church told the officer that he had noticed the signs missing at around 3:20 p.m., cops said.
The signs are described to be 2 feet by 6 feet,vinyl and with a black background and “BLACK LIVES MATTER” written in white letters.
According to police, the signs — which are estimated to be worth $50 each — were hung with eyelets and bungee cords on both sides of the front entrance.
“We are actively investigating this incident,” said Chief Joseph O’Connor. “It is disturbing that anyone would steal a sign from a place of worship.”
Police are looking for suspects involved in the theft and are asking that if anyone saw anything suspicious between April 16 at 5 p.m. through 9 a.m. on April 17, to call the Concord Police Department at 978-318-3400.
