Grave vandalism investigated

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Police are investigating a rash of vandalized graves in Cedar Rapids.

Cedar Rapids police say roughly 55 graves were vandalized at the Mount Vernon Memorial Cemetery in late June and early July.

Police say there are no suspects in connection with the vandalizations.

About 35 volunteers, including members of the Cornell College football team, helped repair the graves Tuesday. Winder says the volunteer support allowed the city to put a big dent in the damage.
