Georgetown police have made an arrest in a three-month long investigation into vandalism at the Georgetown cemetery.

A 15-year old has been charged with several counts of criminal mischief.

In December, nearly a hundred headstones were knocked over, some broken. The damage has been estimated at nearly one hundred thousand dollars.

A judge will now decide if the teen will spend time in jail and how much restitution he and his parents should be responsible for.
