Sheriff's Office Seeking Information in Cemetery Vandalism

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is seeking information regarding vandalism to the Lee Cemetery near Verona over the weekend.  Sadly, someone damaged headstones dating back to the 1800's.

Approximately 50 headstones were damaged or destroyed by someone with very little morals and respect.  Even more disturbing is the fact this happened just after Memorial Day when many people come to the cemetery to pay respects to friends and families buried at the local cemetery.

The Lee Cemetery Association is offering a $1,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.  In addition, the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is also adding and additional $1,000.00 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Attached to this release, you will see some of the damage done by these irresponsible people.

Tips can be anonymous through the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office website at www.lawrencecosheriff.com or through the Barry/Lawrence County Crimestoppers website at www.blcrimestoppers.com.
