MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — The Middletown Police Department released a video of a woman accused of stealing an angel statue from a gravesite in Middletown this weekend.

Police released surveillance video that shows an unidentified woman taking a statue from a gravesite at Calvary Cemetery on Sunday.

On Tuesday evening, after the video was released, police confirm that the woman turned herself in to police.

Police said that the family had recently posted a camera near the site because it was being vandalized.

After the woman places it in her van, the video shows the woman standing in front of the gravesite momentarily and then walking around it before leaving in her van.

Police said the statue is valued at $100, but the family told police the “sentimental value is priceless.”
