The plaque was located still fully intact, with minor damage to one corner. The plaque was recovered and has since been returned to the City of Brantford. The investigation remains open and no charges have been laid at this time.

The Brantford Police Service has continued the investigation into the stolen Historical Plaque since it was reported missing on March 20, 2019 from the monument at Bell Memorial Park located on West Street.

On March 25, 2019 just before 5:30 p.m. the Brantford Police Service received information about the whereabouts of a historical plaque. Community Patrol Officers following up on that information located and verified that it was the stolen Historical Plaque. 

The Brantford Police Service would like to thank the public and our media partners for their assistance in this investigation in spreading the word about the plaques disappearance.

Together we can build a stronger and safer community.

The Historical Plaque had been forcefully removed from the monument. The Historical Plaque was in reference to the work of Walter S. Allward designed in 1917 to commemorate the invention of the telephone in Brantford by Alexander Graham Bell. Mr. Alward also designed the War Memorial on the corner of Dalhousie St and Brant Ave. in 1933. Many Canadians are aware that the Canadian War Memorial designed in Vimy France was also his work in 1921.
