The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is releasing information regarding the Lee Cemetery Vandalism that occurred late May/early June.

Charge have been filed on three individuals regarding damage to Lee Cemetery near Verona.  Curtis Board 17 YOA, Matthew Levan 17 YOA and Holden Davenort 17 YOA all of Aurora have been charged with Institutional Vandalism by the Lawrence County Prosecutor. 

The investigation was aided by tips that came to the Aurora Police Department by citizens.  That information was followed up on by Aurora Detectives and passed to Lawrence County Detectives to further follow up on.  Enough information was gathered and a probable cause statement was given to seek the warrants.

Currently one subject, Curtis Board has been been taken into custody with the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office would like to express thanks to all who provided tips and information that led to charges being filed and to the citizens who stepped up to take care of such a terrible incident.  This is yet another example of when citizens and multiple agencies work together, many things can be accomplished.
