Gravestones vandalized in Warren


Warren police are looking for information on who vandalized approximately 10 gravestones at the South Burial Ground last week.

The stones, most from the late 1800s, were reported vandalized last Wednesday, May 10, at the northwest corner of the South Burial Ground, along Franklin Street. Some were toppled, while others were broken into two or more pieces.

Anyone with information about the stones should call the Warren Police Department at 245-1311.

Since the South Burial Ground was once in Bristol, I think the Warren Town Council should bill the Town of Bristol for 60% of the repairs.
