Police: Two mausoleums breached, remains disturbed

(Continued)

‘SACRED GROUND’

“There’s a certain sense of sacred ground,” Racicot said of cemeteries. “People who commit these kinds of crimes, they don’t understand these boundaries.”

Police continued to investigate the two incidents.

New York has a special designation for cemetery desecration within the criminal mischief section of the state’s Penal Law, Racicot said.

“We’d likely be looking at felony charges.”

Anyone with information related to the crimes is asked to call City Police at 563-3411.

Any information given to police will be kept confidential, Racicot said.
