Arrest made on Vandalism to Lee Cemetery
On Wednesday January 26, 2011 an arrest was made in the Lee Cemetery Vandalism Case. In late November 2010 Lee Cemetery located in the rural Verona area was vandalized by several individuals. Damages included knocking over tombstones, destroying grave markers and various other acts of vandalism. Many of the items could not be replaced and those that could would take several thousands of dollars to repair.
Terry Parker 18 of Mt. Vernon was arrested on Wednesday. Warrants were also issued for Larry D Gentry III of Stotts City for the incident. Gentry is also currently wanted on a Lawrence County Warrant for Statutory Rape. Two other individuals involved are juveniles and will be handled by the Juvenile Courts.
