Claremont considers cameras in cemetery
“If there was actually damage done to the stone that’s much harder to repair,” he said.
Scott said his department has been fortunate to have some communities reach out with solutions to stop cemetery vandalism. One community found success using a motion-activated camera, he said.
This is the second time in recent months that the cemetery has been hit.
In July, about 75 gravestones were vandalized in the same cemetery, including many historic stones that were damaged beyond repair.
Gravestones at the cemetery date back 170 years, with the most recent headstones dating to the 1950s and 1960s, Chase said. Most gravestones in the cemetery are dated between 1900 and 1930.
A $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible is being offered by a group of outraged citizens, police said.
