PIQUA — For the second time in a month, vandals left their marks on a Woodson County cemetery.
Woodson County sheriff’s deputies were called to the St. Martin’s Old Cemetery, where somebody drove a vehicle onto the cemetery grounds, marring it with deep tire ruts.
The cemetery is about a mile west of Piqua on 140th Road.
Deputies speculated the damage was caused by a small vehicle with “highway” tread tires.
The vandalism mirrors damage reported in late November at Kalida Cemetery, about 2 miles southeast of Yates Center, where a motorist left several tire ruts across the cemetery grounds.
Tipsters are encouraged to contact the Woodson County sheriff’s office at (620) 625-8640 with information.
Tips also can be left at the Sheriff’s Department Facebook page, or by calling Crime Stoppers.
