Vandals strike cemetery, knock over headstones

By  | 

Vandals hit a South Bend cemetery, knocking over dozens of headstones.

Sixty headstones were damaged at City Cemetery.

A large decorative piece from the front gate was also found on the ground. Cemetery employees however, aren't sure if this was part of the vandalism or if the piece broke off because of its age.

This round of damage comes after an incident a few months ago, when someone ruined 230 headstones.

Those markers have since been replaced at a considerable cost to the cemetery.

A police report has been filed in response to the vandalism.
