VICKSBURG, Mich. (WOOD) - Authorities are looking for whoever knocked over several headstones at a Vicksburg cemetery.
Vicksburg Police Chief Eric West confirmed to 24 Hour News 8 that headstones at the cemetery were knocked over and some planters were defaced. He said his department is investigating the vandalism.
Police say a passerby reported the damage Monday, though they aren't sure when the vandalism actually happened.
The cemetery is next to an old paper mill that burned down last week. That fire was determined to be arson and the investigation continues.
The chief says police have received some tips on the arson, but he doesn't know if the two cases are related.
There are no suspects yet in the vandalism.
Anyone with information on the arson or the cemetery vandalism is asked to contact the Vicksburg Police Department 269.649.1144.
Wind chills will be in -10 to +10, and snowfall totals in the 1- to 3-inch range.
A memorial marker was unveiled for three young siblings who died in an apartment fire 10 months ago.
Kent County leaders told 24 Hour News 8 they weren't surprised by Gary Rolls Jr.'s resignation from the Kent County Commission Thursday, but those that would comment were happy with the decision.
