Crews Repair Damaged Tombstones

NEAR SANTA CLARA, Ore. — Crews at Luper Pioneer Cemetery spent Sunday repairing two tombstones knocked over by vandals.

Two workers lifted the tombstones with the help of a pulley system and glued them back together.

Vandals have hit the cemetery before. Workers say although the property is tucked away from the road and gated, people still come to the cemetery to cause trouble.

“It’s a half mile walk, so right there unless people are looking for a late night cemetery experience, which we don’t want people out here at night. It’s dangerous,” said Peter Thurston, President of Luper Cemetery.

Anyone with information about who vandalized the tombstones should contact police.
