Vandals Wreck Dozens Of Headstones At Cemetery

50-60 Headstones, Statues Knocked Over

Vandals knocked over and damaged 50 to 60 headstones and statues at the Mountain View Cemetery, causing thousands of dollars in damage, Longmont police said.

Cemetery workers discovered the vandalism Tuesday morning. There are no suspects at this time.

Given the weight of the stones, police said more than one person had to be involved, the Longmont Times-Call reported. The vandalism will likely warrant charges of felony criminal mischief.

Most of the damage was centered in the middle of the cemetery, next to the 1100 and 1200 blocks of Main Street, police said. If you have any information, please contact the Longmont Police Department at 303-651-8555.
