Ontario Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a woman caught on camera stealing items from a baby's gravesite at Mansfield Memorial Park.

This theft happened Saturday, April 19, several hours after Scott and Jaclyn Sheridan placed a stuffed duck on their son's gravesite. Hayden "Tank" Coles Sheridan, died in 2007.

His parents say items such as toys and solar lights have been stolen from the site over the past four years. The family discovered the duck was gone when they went to visit their son's grave on Easter.

Ontario Police set up a camera two years ago in an effort to catch the suspects, stealing items from the gravesite. Police say the images were not clear enough to identify the suspect.

Ontario Police posted video of this latest theft on the department's Facebook page Saturday. The stuffed duck was recovered along the cemetery property.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Ontario Police Department at 419-529-2115 or send police a private message. We tried to contact the baby's father, Scott Sheridan, about these thefts, but have yet to hear back from him.
