Two Boys Charged With Cemetery Vandalism

Police say two Stinnett Elementary students are responsible for the vandalism at the Collett Family Cemetery in the Roark area of Leslie County.

Leslie County Sheriff Paul Howard says the two boys were removed from class earlier Friday afternoon. Both juveniles are charged with first degree criminal mischief and desecration of a grave site. Howard says the two boys are being held in Breathitt County and will be in court for a preliminary hearing next Tuesday.

Authorities say the boys caused nearly twenty-five hundred dollars worth of damage to the cemetery.
