CUYAHOGA FALLS -- It's a heinous crime that has many people upset. Vandals have damaged Oakwood Cemetery and keep coming back to do it again.
"To come in the following morning and see all these knocked over is very disappointing," said Bill White.
Gravestones that have been here since the 18th century have been shattered and many of them can't be repaired.
"It makes me very angry. I mean my father is buried in the cemetery. There is no reason to be in there other than to pay respects," says Captain Jack Danials with the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department.
Members of the grounds crew say the vandals started at the top of a hill in the middle of the cemetery, then ran down the slope knocking over as many as twenty grave markers.
The city is trying to put the gravestones back up right but can't keep up after vandals then started taking out the heavier monuments.
Martha Guld says, "It's sad that they don't have enough respect for other people's property that they would do something like that."
