Mission Hills Historical Plaque Theft

Historical Plaque Mission Hills Historical Plaque TheftA series of theft began in June 2011 when approximately two dozen historic designation plaques were stripped from the front of historic homes, public buildings and neighborhood markers in communities including Mission Hills and Old Town, as well as in National City and Chula Vista.

The Mission Hills Community immediately got involved byspreading the word that these thieves would likely come out at night to remove these valuable (estimated value $400-$1200 each) historic plaques with intention to sell for metal recycling.

An emergency meeting was scheduled September 14th, 2011 at Francis Parker School to discuss the neighborhood burglaries, joined by the Mission Hills Town Council, Mission Hills Heritage, Mission Hills Garden Club, Community Members and Home Owners, and the San Diego Police Department.

Approximately 35 Mission Hills Residents were thrilled when the San Diego Police Department announced at the meeting that they had made an arrest in the historic plaque theft with possibly two additional suspects to follow.   

Police Detective Mark Brenner attended the meeting and stated “We realized how important it was to the Community, so it was important to us to put it on our priority list”. When asked about the community involvement, Brenner said “I think they played a very good role. I told them I’m impressed with how the community of Mission Hills came together, were vigilant and were contacting me with information.”

Unfortunately a majority of the plaques have already been destroyed. It had been said that the theft only received about $20 per plaque from the San Diego recycling center.  One plaque was recovered that was stolen over the weekend from a North Park house, valued at $1000.

It is times like this that you can see the true colors of the Mission Hills Community. We are happy and proud to live and work in Mission Hills!
