Vandals hit cemetery

Police are looking for information about a recent act of vandalism at a Pine Mountain cemetery.

Letcher County Sheriff ’s Deputy Michael Burton said someone “did donuts and spun out all over the place” with a vehicle, destroying grass in the Douglas Day Military Cemetery located on Douglas Day Drive near the American Legion Post 152 building. Burton said vandals ran over one tombstone and knocked over another tombstone.

Burton received a complaint call on April 1 reporting the vandalism but said the damage could have happened a few days before he was notified of the incident.

Burton has charge of the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact him at 633-2293.
