The reward has been doubled to $500 for information about the Labor Day weekend vandalism at Oak Hill Cemetery in eastern Lawrence, a city official in charge of the cemetery said today.
Fred DeVictor, director of parks and recreation, said the city received an anonymous donation of $250 to match the $250 the city had already put up for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of those involved in vandalism.
About 175 grave markers were toppled or broken at the cemetery, located at 1605 Oak Hill. DeVictor was it was the worst case of vandalism the city has experienced at the cemetery.
He said anyone having information about the vandalism should contact the Lawrence Police Department's detective division.
Police Sgt. Kevin Harmon said detectives still are investigating the vandalism but have not yet made any arrests.
