Lockerbie Disaster Memorial Room Robbed For Second Time

The suspect wanted in connection with a theft of donations from the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Memorial Room at Tundergarth, has returned and taken more money. The latest theft happened at 8.40am on Wednesday 30th August, just five days after the initial sum of money was stolen on Friday 25th August. A security camera once again captured the incident. The memorial room honours the 270 lives lost in the Lockerbie bombing on 21st December, 1988.


Donations are collected on behalf of Tundergarth Kirks Trust, who alongside the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Legacy Foundation, work to keep Tundergarth Church open, as well as raise funds to build a Memorial Museum, on this iconic site.


Police Scotland say that they have identified the suspect and are working to trace him.


A spokesperson for the Trust said:


“We’re shocked and saddened that the thief who stole money from our donations box last week, has once again returned and carried out the same crime. We understand that Police Scotland has identified the suspect and officers are working to trace the person.
“We would of course like the suspect to hand themselves in, and return the stolen money. All of the donations we receive are vital in helping us to keep our church open, and allow us to continue our work with the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Legacy Foundation to develop the site at Tundergarth.”
