The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office is investigating acts of vandalism at Beechwood Cemetery in Kendall.
The first incident was reported on Oct. 12, when damage to what was once a chapel was discovered.
Deputies were called back to the cemetery two days later after 32 gravestones had been toppled -- and in some instances -- broken to pieces. Many of the monuments marked the graves of individuals buried in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Sheriff’s Office is pursuing leads and asks anyone with information regarding the crimes to call 589-5527.
