October 07, 2009

BOONSBORO -- Vandals damaged a cemetery twice last week, said Tom Bikle, the president of the association that oversees the cemetery.

Overnight on Friday, two brass plaques at the entrance were stolen.

The Boonsboro Police Department found the plaques on Saturday in a nearby yard, Bikle said.

Also on Saturday, four urns in the cemetery were turned over; two were destroyed, he said.

In addition, someone broke a cross off an old tombstone.

Bikle estimated the damage to be more than $1,000.

He said the cemetery association is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of whomever did the damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 301-432-6838 or Bikle at 301-432-6028.
