Just one person was involved in the large scale vandalism that took place in late April at St. Joseph's Cemetery on Westmorland Road. That word coming from Police Chief Bill Reid who says every lead was pursued even beyond the city. A 20 year old man from the east side will be in court later month on a charge of causing mischief of over 5 thousand dollars. His name will not be released until he is formally charged. More than 300 headstones were toppled over and some could not be repaired. Alot of people are expressing surprise at just one person being responsible but the Chief says it doesn't take a lot to push over the headstones.
