More than 30 graves in a Montgomery County cemetery have been destroyed by vandals.

Mt. Sterling Police are investigating the vandalism that they believe happened sometime in the first two weeks of September. The damage was just discovered on September 16th by a cemetery visitor.

Many of the grave stone were crushed, knocked over, or moved from their correct plots.

Police call it "disrespectful" and neighbors are having a hard time making sense of it.
