CENTERVILLE (AP)--Four boys are accused of causing more than $100,000 damage to a cemetery and a wastewater treatment plant in Centerville in southern Iowa.

The damage at Oakland Cemetery was discovered Wednesday night. Police say nearly 160 headstones were knocked over.

Other damage was discovered at the treatment plant, which is next to the cemetery. Police discovered broken glass in some of the buildings.

The boys -- ages 10 to 14 -- were arrested on Thursday. They're charged with two counts of first-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree burglary.

Three boys were turned over to juvenile authorities, while the fourth was released to his parents.
