LONGMONT - A cemetery in Longmont says vandals tipped over 106 headstones over the weekend and knocked a granite Civil War memorial statue from its base, broke it into pieces and took its head.
Tracey George manages the Mountain View cemetery for the nonprofit board that runs it. George tells the Longmont Times-Call that it appears at least two vandals have struck the cemetery on four occasions since July 6.
The first time they tipped eight headstones from bases. The second time, 20 were tipped. On July 31, vandals tipped 51 headstones.
Sometime Saturday, after a security company patrolled at about 12:15 a.m., vandals tipped 106 headstones and damaged a Civil War memorial statue that was donated to cemetery in 1907.
The culprits aren't known.
