The Village of Islandia and Suffolk County Police Crime Stoppers are again asking the public’s help in locating whoever is responsible for the theft of the Marine Corps medallion from a monument in Islandia, police said in a news release reissued Tuesday.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered in the case of the theft from the Veterans Memorial on Old Nichols Road and Johnson Avenue.

Village Mayor Allan M. Dorman said in a statement last month that the medallion is believed to have been taken Jan. 15 at about 11 p.m. The stolen medallion is about the size of a basketball or a large plate and adorned the monument directly above the Marine Corps motto, “Semper Fidelis,” or “Always Faithful.”

The reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for stealing the medallion.

Anyone with information is asked to call Village Hall at 631-348-1133 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477.

All calls will be kept confidential.
