Police are asking for the public's help
for information on the subjects who damaged 17 headstones at the Laurel Grove
North Cemetery in Savannah, causing thousands of dollars of damage.
According to Savannah-Chatham Metro, cemetery
workers discovered the damage last Wednesday morning when they found the
headstones pushed off their foundations, many of them broken, at the cemetery
at 802 West Anderson Street. Some of the headstones were placed there in the 19th
century and are irreplaceable.
SCMPD Central Precinct detectives are
investigating and city of Savannah staffers are also participating because most
owners of record are deceased and their heirs are not identified.
Anyone with information on the case is asked
to call Crimestoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain
anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
